Original consultation

We are seeking to introduce new draft charging guidance to Ofwat to consider when setting their charging rules for relevant water undertakers who operate wholly or mainly in Wales.

Consultation description

The Water Act 2014 received Royal Assent on 14th May 2014. The Act sets out a new framework for the regulation of charging in the water industry. This has enabled Welsh Ministers for the first time to develop new Charging Guidance which Ofwat must have regards to in developing their Charging Rules for water undertakers and water and sewerage undertakers who operate wholly or mainly in Wales.

The purpose of the Charging Guidance is to ensure that Ofwat’s Charging Rules reflect the Welsh Government’s policy priorities for the water sector.

This consultation sets out:

  • our objectives for charging in the water industry within the context of our overarching policy commitments for the water sector within Wales
  • the wider goals and principals of the Welsh Government.
