Who are ASERA (the Association of Severn Estuary Relevant Authorities)? ASERA (the Association of Severn Estuary Relevant Authorities) are the statutory organisations (relevant authorities) around the Severn Estuary that came together to collectively manage their activities on the Severn Estuary European Marine Site.
Who are the Advisory Group to the management scheme?
Interest groups around the estuary have formed an Advisory Group to provide advice to the statutory organisations about what is happening on the ground around the estuary, to help raise awareness of the nature conservation designations and inform members of their respective organisations.
What is being done for the management of the site? The statutory organisations, with the help of user groups (Advisory Group), produced a management scheme in 2004. All the ASERA member statutory organisations review their activities and the potential impact on the nature conservation features of the site on an annual basis. They are working collectively to raise awareness of the nature conservation designations and how people can help protect the valuable birds and habitats for which the Severn Estuary is designated. A leaflet explaining the Severn Estuary Special Protection Area has been produced
