Brief Description of Decision:

 

 

The decision was to approve a collaborative proposal co-designed with voluntary sector partners to support European Economic Area (EEA) and Swiss nationals and their families residing in Rotherham to apply through the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS).

 

Reasons for the Decision:

 

 

This will enable EEA nationals to secure appropriate status by the required timescales to continue to reside in the UK following its exit from the EU

 

Details of alternative options considered and rejected:

 

To continue with the current arrangements. However, there is a risk that applications would remain low, particularly across more disadvantaged communities. This could mean that a significant proportion of EEA residents and their families in Rotherham would lose their lawful status in the UK and by extension, their right to work, rent a property, receive medical care or education as well as potentially become subject to enforcement proceedings for removal from the UK
