Coastal Areas: Access

Volume 463: debated on Thursday 19 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what steps he plans to take to make access to coastal lands available to walkers. (150604)

On 19 June we issued ‘Consultation on proposals to improve access to the English coast’. It seeks views on a number of different options to improve access including the proposal to allow Natural England to designate a ‘coastal access corridor’ allowing people to enjoy unbroken access to the coast. A decision on which approach to take will be made following the consultation.
