*R (on the application of Seiont, Gwyrfai and Llyfni Anglers' Society) v Natural Resources Wales

Environment – Protection. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the claimant Seiont, Gwyrfai and Llyfni Anglers' Society's application for judicial review, held that 'damage', as defined in art 2(2) of Parliament and Council Directive (CE) 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.
