Consultation description

We are required to consult formally on changes to our charges. This consultation sets out a number of charging proposals for our Abstraction charges scheme to:

  • meet our compensation liabilities to address unsustainable abstraction
  • seek to address the issue of high subsistence charges in the Northumbria regional charging area

We want to know what you think about these proposals. Your responses will form an important part of our final submission to government.
