Impact of Brexit on Lincolnshire Farms
There has been much reported in the press on the challenges that Lincolnshire farmers have faced since Brexit, in particular with this years harvest. Some of the stories have appeared in the national press. Some have remained local. All point to a trend of costs going up. Costs that will have to be recovered in some way. It is inevitable that we are facing a period of food price inflation that will hamper our economic recovery from the effects of Covid. The latest evidence that all is not as it should be comes from a report on the impact of Brexit on tenants of farms owned by Lincolnshire County Council, which was presented to the Council's Environment and Economy Scrutiny Committee on 19 October.

There are now less than 55 days for EU Citizens and families to secure their rights in the UK by applying to the EU Settlement Scheme. There have been over 73,000 applications made in Lincolnshire but in some parts of the county applications have been low. The deadline to the EU Settlement Scheme is now less than 55 days away (30 June 2021). Those EU Citizens, including children, that fail to apply to the scheme will lose their rights to reside, rent, work, study, access the NHS and access benefits after the 30 June 2021.
