RAPID, established in 2019, is the Regulators’ Alliance for Progressing Infrastructure Development. We are a partnership of three water regulators: Ofwat, the Environment Agency and the Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI). Natural Resources Wales is involved in an advisory capacity and has a decision-making role for any solution involving Wales, Welsh policy and legislation. RAPID provides advice and recommendations on the development of strategic water resources to the partner regulators, DWI, Ofwat, the Environment Agency, and to Natural Resources Wales (NRW). The responses to this consultation will subsequently feed into our advice to partner regulators and to NRW during 2022.
This consultation document follows our discussion document published in June and sets out policy options for the regulatory and commercial framework with the aim of supporting the development of strategic resource options which deliver the best outcomes for customers, the environment and wider society now and in the future.
We welcome views on the policy options set out in this document.
