In October 2018, the Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership (CLEP) Board identified a need to understand the potential impact of Brexit on the Cumbrian economy. In December 2018 Nicol Economics with the Cumbria Intelligence Observatory and CRED at the University of Cumbria produced an analysis of the potential impact of Brexit in Cumbria.

The subsequent report updates the findings of the December 2018 Brexit analysis note for Cumbria in the light of developments since then. It focusses on the potential economic consequences of Brexit on the Cumbria economy (and so does not cover any potential social or well-being impacts). The focus of the note is, unlike the December 2018 work, on the shorter term economic implications of Brexit.
