Managing the Estuary

Managing the Estuary

Management of the Severn Estuary occurs in a number of different ways and is delivered by a number of different local authorities and other relevant organisations across the estuary. For example, marine and terrestrial planning processes ensure that sustainable development occurs across the estuary, particularly important whilst managing a cross-border site with many protected areas and designations. Some of the ways in which the estuary is managed can be found below!
