Stage 3 - Identification of key activities. The aim of this stage is to produce a matrix of activities for all relevant authorities across the whole of the site, which may cause deterioration or damage to the features and/or sub-features of the EMS. These will be determined by sector group (local authorities, ports/harbour authorities, Environment Agency, water companies and Internal Drainage Boards) meetings, where one co-ordinator from each RA will identify which activities their RA is responsible for and which operations they cause. A generic list of activities will be analysed for this purpose. The matrix will provide a site-specific summary of how local activities interact with the interest features of the EMS
