The arrival of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) in 2005 saw a change from the Dounreay Local Liaison Committee to the Dounreay Stakeholder Group (DSG).
A wide variety of organisations with an interest in Dounreay and its impact on the community make up the membership of the DSG.
The group meets in public four times a year. Sub-group meetings are held in between these times.
The group has an annual budget provided by the NDA. In addition, Dounreay also provides administrative support.
