RAPID’s role in the gated process (working with the partner regulators and Natural Resources Wales) is to assess the progress made in development of each solution and to provide advice and recommendations to enable Ofwat to make decisions on continued funding for progression of the solutions.
The following decisions will be made at gate one:
- whether solution and options within it should progress to gate two;
- applying incentives and allowable costs;
- whether alternative and/ or additional solutions should enter the process;
- and what is required for gate two submissions.
Representation to draft decisions at gate one
*Please note the date change for the representation period and the final decision publication date*
Solution sponsors and all other interested parties are invited to respond to the draft gate one decisions published on 14 September 2021.
Representations are invited by email to [email protected]. The representation period will close at 5pm on 29 October 2021.
*Please note that the date for the representation period has been extended for SESRO only.* This is due to the republishing of the annexes with revised redactions by the solution owners. The representation period for SESRO, will close at 5pm on 19 November 2021.
All representations will be carefully considered in reaching final decisions, which will be published on 8 December 2021.
