*Seiont, Gwyrfai and Llyfni Anglers' Society v Natural Resources Wales

Environment – Protection. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, upheld the judge's decision that 'damage', as defined in art 2(2) of European Parliament and Council Directive (EC) 2004/35 was restricted to a deterioration in the environmental situation and did not include the prevention of an existing, already damaged environmental state from achieving a level which was acceptable in environmental terms or a deceleration in such achievement.
