Forward Work Programme 2023/2024 published

Today we publish our Forward Work Programme (FWP) 2023/2024.  This is in compliance with our statutory duties which require us to publish the FWP by 31 March. 

The FWP is the business plan for the fifth year of our Corporate Strategy 2019-24.

The FWP sets out the non-routine projects we would like to undertake in the forthcoming year. The projects are presented in the context of our Corporate Strategy objectives.

Commenting on the publication of our Forward Work Programme, Kevin Shiels, Utility Regulator Acting Chief Executive, said:

“ Our new programme of projects for 2023/2024 shows our ambition to deliver on our strategic objectives. The projects will help us promote markets that support competition, choice and fair outcomes. 

“ Given the ongoing pressure on household and business budgets our focus remains on playing our part in keeping consumer bills as low as they can be. 

“ Our projects will also give further impetus to supporting our goal of enabling 21st century networks and a low carbon future.  Key to helping us deliver on our projects is collaboration and co-operation with our stakeholders, and we are grateful for their contribution in helping us shaping our programme of projects.”

Responses to our public consultation on the draft Forward Work Programme are also published.  We will also provide direct feedback to those that have responded.

A paper copy of the FWP can be obtained from Barbara Brown via e-mail or in writing to the Utility Regulator, Queens House, 14 Queen Street, Belfast, BT1 6ED.

Copies of the document will be made available in accessible formats if required.
