5. You now need to complete the action plan. You need to prioritise the work that needs to be done. If you have found any adverse
impact or discrimination that is illegal you must address these immediately and therefore they will be top priority in your action plans.

detail then the resulting action may be an additional EIA focussing on a specific area of concern.
