Stakeholder engagement


We monitor and report on the quality of Network Rail's engagement with its stakeholder community in control period 6 (CP6). 

In CP6, Network Rail should be engaging with its stakeholders in a way that improves delivery for passengers and freight end users, and enhances value for money. 

We monitor how well Network Rail is engaging with its stakeholder community, carrying out annual assessments of the quality of its engagement in specific areas. 

The annual assessment sets out our views on the quality of Network Rail’s stakeholder engagement for the fourth year of CP6 (April 2022 to March 2023). The report summarises our key findings on Network Rail’s stakeholder engagement at a national level and across its business units, making recommendations for improvement which apply across the entire business. It also presents our assessment of how well Network Rail engaged with stakeholders on its Enhancement Delivery Plans (EDP).
