Four Independent Advisory Panels were set up in 2012 to help Anglian Water understand the views of the wide range of organisations and interest groups in the region.

The Panels focused on four key themes:

  • Economic Development
  • Environment and Climate Change
  • Customers and Community
  • Hartlepool

The panels were independently chaired with the chairmen sitting on the Customer Engagement Forum to ensure the wider views were also reflected here.

The panels were vital in helping us to deliver a business plan for 2015-2020 that best reflects and balances customer and stakeholder priorities.

We are grateful for the enthusiasm of members to join us and give their time to help us consult widely with our stakeholders and customers. Each of the Panels submitted a report concluding their findings. These reports can be found in the ‘Minutes and Reports’ section.

The Hartlepool and Environment & Climate change panels will continue to meet regularly to advise and challenge us. And members from all four original panels along with other stakeholders will be invited to an annual stakeholder forum to review and hold us to account for our progress in delivering the plan.
