SCR Timeline

Below you can find a summary of the planned activities for the Speed and Cost Review (SCR). Stages 1-16 have been completed through discussion and consultation internally and externally with our stakeholders.

The scope of the review was agreed by the Board of Trustees (BoT) following consultation on the details of the FSR with Stakeholder Council (StC) and assisted by the Technical Advisory Board (TAB). External engagement activities with a diverse stakeholder in activities including workshops, webinars and online public consultations are also vital part in the review and program development process.
