Local Implications of Brexit: Considerations and Recommendations

South Northamptonshire Council and Cherwell District Council  have commissioned a Report on the 'Local Implications of Brexit: Considerations and Recommendations'. It is available to view and download as a PDF document here:

The Report provides an action plan to ensure the Councils future activities to improve the local economy are informed and evidence based.

The Report Authors, Deyton Bell, look in turn at the main economic implications of Brexit. The Report then maps the potential  impacts and consequences against four themes:

  • Macro-economy
  • Industry
  • Household and
  • Government

The Report then concludes with a range of findings, observations and recommendations drawn from a range of local stakeholders who contributed to the study.
