Stakeholder Group

The Stakeholder sub group undertakes reviews, scrutiny and challenge of United Utilities’ performance on operations and proposals from a regional stakeholder perspective.

It reviews and challenges the company’s approach to stakeholder communications, research, engagement and best practice, and how this insight informs the PR24 Business plan submission to Ofwat and influences business as usual activity.

The sub group seeks to understand the challenges facing the company and the region, and express views on priorities from a stakeholder perspective. The group reviews the reach of stakeholder engagement and the best methods to engage as many people and organisations as possible.
