The majority of statutory organisations around the estuary continue to subscribe to ASERA.

Activities - all statutory organisations continue to review their activities annually to assess if they are impacting on the designated birds and habitats. English Nature and the Countryside Council for Wales help with this process. These reviews contribute to the management scheme being updated annually after the ASERA AGM each November.

Awareness - ASERA, with the help of the Advisory Group, have produced a leaflet promoting the birds and habitats of the Special Protection Area and encouraging users and residents to consider how they use the estuary to ensure that birds and their habitats are not disturbed or damaged.

Recreation groups have been initiated at Bridgwater Bay, Woodspring Bay and Severn Beach, with the initial remit of identifying the main recreation interests in these areas. The groups will then progress to assess how these recreation interests can best co-exist with the nature conservation interests.
