What are we doing

Last Updated:

As a small district council, our role is primarily that of facilitating and influencing to help minimize the impact of any potential disruption and make a success of Brexit.

The multi-agency Kent Resilience Forum is committed to working with the Department for Transport, Kent County Council and Highways England to prepare for a range of potential outcomes, including the event of no deal and traffic disruption on Kent’s roads.

Forum partners are continuing to develop contingency plans to ensure the M20 can be kept open to traffic and that disruption for local residents, businesses and other road users is kept to a minimum, in addition to plans for additional temporary traffic holding areas under a worst-case scenario.

The Forum is also planning for a wide range of other contingencies, including the welfare of those who may be delayed in queues for long periods of time.
