Cornwall Council closes Brussels office

Cornwall Council has started the process of closing down its Brussels office in response to the UK’s decision to leave the European Union.

With the original contract due to end in January 2022, the decision by council leader Linda Taylor will see the office close in September.

The council said the closure would free up a budget of £25,000 which they will use to invest in projects to support the local economy.

Council leader Linda Taylor said: ‘Decisions are no longer made in Brussels and closing the Cornwall Brussels Office reflects this shift with decision-making now resting firmly in the UK.

‘Closing the office allows us to free up funds to invest in our local economy and deliver on our promise to spend Cornish taxpayers money wisely.’

During the three-month notice period to the end of the contract, the Cornwall Brussels Office will focus on G7 legacy and trade and investment links, supporting Cornish stakeholders in accessing the Horizon Europe research and innovation programme, and providing policy advice to Cornish businesses on the new UK-EU relationship.
