UK Prime Minister Theresa May plans to trigger article 50 by end of March next year

When triggered, Article 50 gives the country two years to agree to the the specifics of the exit; if this process is not finished within the deadline and member states do not vote unanimously to extend it, then the UK would be forced to leave the EU — leading to hesitancy in triggering it.

Her decision is consistent with what some have asked for. Ian Duncan Smith said earlier, "they need to get on with triggering Article 50 as soon as possible early in the new year". There have been reports the French and Italian governments want Article 50 to be triggered as soon as possible. Others have said they want Article 50 to be triggered immediately; in early August a UK petition calling for article 50 to be triggered immediately got 100,000 signatures.
