“A notification pursuant to s 28 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 that an area of land was of special scientific interest did not constitute a ‘plan’ or a ‘project’ for the purposes of art 6(3) of Council Directive 92/43/EC (‘the Habitats Directive’) and so was not subject to an appropriate assessment of its conservation implications for any special protection area on which it was likely to have a significant effect.”
