A statement from the Kent Resilience Forum said:
“Following the agreement between the UK government and the European Union to extend the deadline for Britain’s withdrawal from the EU, the Kent Resilience Forum’s work to minimise disruption to the county will continue.
“As a multi-agency group of partners we are committed to preparing for the country’s anticipated withdrawal and have developed contingency plans to keep Kent moving and open for business.
“This includes keeping the M20 open in both directions, minimising disruption for local communities and implementing welfare plans for those who may be affected by delays.
“We will continue to liaise with central government, fine tune our plans and keep the communities of Kent informed over the coming months.”
