Draft Forward Programme 2017-18 published

Published: 16 December 2016

Consultation opened on 16 December 2016. Consultation closed 17 February 2017.


The Draft Forward Work Programme 2017-18 is published.

We publish our draft Forward Work Programme 2017-18 today.

This draft FWP lists the projects that we propose to do during 2017-2018 and is published for consultation.  During the consultation, we would particularly welcome views on:

  • whether we have prioritised the right projects;
  • any objections to our proposed projects; and
  • any other comments.

The majority of the projects are major pieces of work which will span the business planning year (and in some cases will take more than one year to complete). Comments or observations on the timing of projects are also welcome. 

Comments should be sent to us by 17 February 2017 at the latest to briege.tyrie@uregni.gov.uk

We intend to hold a stakeholder meeting during the consultation period, on 27 January 2017, at our offices.  This will provide an opportunity to discuss the draft FWP.  Please let us know before 20 January 2017 if you wish to attend.

A paper copy of the draft FWP can be obtained from:
