In accordance with paragraph 4 of Schedule 3 to that Act(3), Ministers have decided that the application relates to a project which falls within Annex II to Council Directive 85/337/EEC (4), as relevantly amended by Council Directive 97/11/EC (5) and Council Directive 2003/35/EC (6), on the assessment of the effects of certain public and private projects on the environment but, taking into account the criteria set out in Annex III to that Directive, that the project is not a relevant project.
