Detail of outcome
We received 22 responses to this consultation. The revised draft regulations have been laid in Parliament and will be published on legislation.gov.uk. If approved, the regulations will come into force on 3 October 2016.
We want to know what you think about draft regulations for retail exits. We’re also seeking feedback on a draft application form which water companies wanting to exit the market will use.
Water companies will be able to leave the market, with permission, from April 2017 onwards.
