December 2004 – May 2005: Changes to the designated status of sites

On 8 December 2004, the European Commission formally adopted all candidate SACs in the Atlantic Biogeographical Region, which includes the UK, that had been submitted up to that date, as Sites of Community Importance (SCIs). The Habitats Directive gives Member States up to six years to formally designate their SCIs as SACs; within the UK, designation is devolved to the relevant administration in each country.
 
  • The National Assembly for Wales designated all SCIs in Wales as full SACs on 13 December 2004.
  • The Scottish Executive designated all SCIs in Scotland as full SACs on 17 March 2005.
  • Defra designated all SCIs in England (including Scottish and Welsh cross-border sites) as full SACs on 1 April 2005.
  • Environment and Heritage Service received ministerial approval for the designation of all SCIs in Northern Ireland as full SACs on 16 May 2005.
 
All other data apart from the site status remained unchanged from the date when each site had been last submitted to the EC.
