Issue: There are potential conflicts between different surface water uses and between surface water activities and the environment.
   
Objective: Potential conflicts between different surface water activities managed and adverse effects on the environment avoided.

Principal Reasons for Adopting: To a large extent, recreational activities and boating movements (apart from noise, rubbish and sewage discharges) do not adversely affect the environment. However, there are high use areas where conflicts between users can arise and/or where safety and navigation matters are paramount. (Discharges from ships are dealt with in Ch4 of this Plan).
