Summary and Next Steps
The Scottish Government is committed to ensuring that Scottish Water continues to provide the services that customers require and for which they are prepared to pay. The participation of customers and stakeholders is essential to ensuring this outcome.
This paper has set out, and seeks views on, the Government's policy framework in relation to Scottish Water for the next regulatory period and beyond. In particular, it has identified some specific aspects of the charging framework that require further consideration and has offered an updated view on the improvements which will be required to services.
The Government would welcome your views on these issues. If you wish to comment please complete the form at https://consult.gov.scot/energy-and-climate-change-directorate/water-services-final-consultation.
