This 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 2021-27 and key issues arising. The documents are the Principles of Charging statement and the Investment Direction 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.
