This document sets out our forward work programme for the coming financial year. Our work programme is designed to help us deliver our strategy, ‘Trust in water’. This document reflects changes since, and as a result of, our consultation on our draft forward programme for 2016-17. We held the consultation between 3 February and 17 February 2016. Our strategy is the means through which we fulfil our statutory duties. We also carry out our relevant functions in accordance with the statements of strategic priorities and objectives we receive from the UK and Welsh Governments.
