Stakeholders & Community
The Energy Act 2004 established the NDA as an open and transparent organisation with a duty to engage and consult with stakeholders on all aspects of its work. To succeed in our mission we need to work in partnership with the Government, the Regulators and other stakeholders.
The way we and our contractors tackle decommissioning and clean-up and bring about significant structural and cultural changes within the industry needs to
- be innovative; and
- improve safety, security and environmental performance.
We commissioned a review of our national engagement in March 2010. After 5 years, we needed to consider whether or not the arrangements for working with stakeholders remained "fit for purpose".
The Environment Council (TEC) carried out the review. We published their report together with the NDA's response.
Following this review, we have revised our approach to planning and delivering stakeholder engagement. The five steps below summarise our approach.
Annually we consider our business requirements. This informs a planned forward look "engagement agenda".
We consider whether existing mechanisms can deliver some or all of the required engagement or if additional activity is required.
We outline our engagement programme and invite comment.
Informed by stakeholder feedback, we design and deliver our engagement programme.
We evaluate against the purpose/objective of the engagement and include relevant learning in future engagement processes.

Site Stakeholder Groups
Site Stakeholder Groups (SSGs) are the interface between the community, the site operator, and the NDA.
They meet regularly and provide opportunities for
- questioning the operator, the NDA, and regulators
- reviewing, commenting on, and influencing strategies, plans, and achievements
- More information on arrangements and process for engagement with communities local to sites
We consult annually on our Draft Business Plan.
