The Association of Severn Estuary Relevant Authorities (ASERA) produced a management scheme in September 2004 through close working with an Advisory Group of user group interests.

Following the production of the Management Scheme, the Management Group (MG), Working Group (WG) and the Advisory Group (AG) have been set clear roles for implementation. ASERA is now facilitated by an Implementation Officer and administrative staff on a part time basis based at the Severn Estuary Partnership. The management scheme will be reviewed annually, and in particular, ASERA member organisations will review their activities and their potential impact on the designated birds and habitats.

Group Roles
Management Group (MG)
The Management Group meets twice a year to guide the implementation of the management scheme.

Working Group (WG)
The WG meet inbetween the MG meetings to co-ordinate the work of implementation staff and provide momentum to the implementation of the scheme.

Advisory Group (AG)
The Advisory Group now meet annually and are providing essential information for the development of the management scheme, especially in relation to land and water based recreation issues. They also focus on raising awareness of the designated birds and habitats and relating this information to their respective group members.
