WICS publishes first SRC21 decision papers

The Water Industry Commission for Scotland has published the first three of a series of Decision Papers that will underpin its Strategic Review of Charges 2021-27 for Scottish Water.

This first paper sets out the Commission’s views on Scottish Water’s Strategic Projections which were published in February 2018, including the relative impact on prices of the various inputs to the price review.

This second sets out the Commission’s views on the appropriate macroeconomic inputs to use in a Strategic Plan and on the likely growth in the customer base over the regulatory control period.

This third 2018 Decision Paper sets out the Commission’s thoughts on the investment planning and prioritisation process. This will play an important role in ensuring that stakeholders can provide input to Scottish Water’s investment planning within the objectives established by the Scottish Ministers.

Further Decision Papers will follow this year. The Commission published thirteen Initial Decision Papers during 2017.
