European Union – Environment. Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2015/72 of 3 December 2014, adopting an eighth update of the list of sites of Community importance for the Atlantic biogeographical region, was invalid, in so far as, by that decision, the Haringvliet site (NL 1000015) had been placed on that list without the inclusion of the Leenheerenpolder. The Court of Justice of the European Union so held in a preliminary ruling in proceedings brought by a conservation and environmental association concerning the legality of a decision taken by the Secretary of State, Netherlands, to reduce the size of a special area of conservation.
