No, that's how it works currently, for all EU members including the UK.
Local law has to enshrine EU law; any other laws they propose or pass can't go against EU law. If they do, or they sail close to the wind, the EU gets upset - just look at Poland.
The appeals process is local in the first instance (UK Court of Appeals, Supreme Court, Parliament?) but EU law gives the right to appeal to the ECJ as the final arbitrator.
IIRC EU law is proposed by unelected commissioners and voted on by MEPs.
