The use of محيط

Hello, in an article I read today the phrase وعزا التقرير ذلك الى عدد من الحواجز القانونية والاجتماعية المحيطة بالمنطقة came up and I don't understand how the word المحيطة fits in here grammatically. It acts as an adjective but as i understand the sentence it basically means: The report attributed this to a number of legal and social barriers (which are present) in the region. Doesn't محيط mean surroundings/periphery/environment?

How do you translate the sentence and how does المحيطة بالمنطقة fit in?

Thanks!

    المحيطة بالمنطقة = around the area

    "المحيطة بالمنطقه "
    it is grammatically right meaning that "surrounding the area"
    The report attributed this to a number of legal and social barriers that surrounding the area
    and your translation is perfect
    good luck
