Investing in and paying for your water services from 2021: final consultation

Closes 5 Apr 2020

Opened 13 Jan 2020


This updated consultation seeks views on drafts of the 2 statutory inputs Scottish Ministers must make to the Strategic Review of Water Charges for the regulatory period 2021-2027 and key issues arising. The documents are the Principles of Charging statement and the Investment Directions and they provide the general policy framework which will guide the detailed work on the strategic review by the Water Industry Commission for Scotland and Scottish Water.

Why We Are Consulting

Ministers wish to ensure that the widest possible range of customer and stakeholder views are taken into account at all stages of the Strategic Review of Charges. A number of policy areas have been updated since the original consultation was published on 6 July 2018.
