Customer and Stakeholder Engagement Plan

Levels of engagement

We use the Customer and Stakeholder Engagement Plan (CSEP) to decide when and how to communicate with anyone affected by our roadworks.

In order to decide the level of engagement and communication required, we grade the works based on the disruption caused.

The table below sets out the different levels of engagement and their timescales.
