What about a coastal path?

Have your say

I really enjoy being by the coast in Eastbourne area. I really love it because the views are amazing at all times of the year and anyone can enjoy it as many are accessible to people with disabilities.

We were all promised a continuous path along England’s coast but now it looks like the Government might go back on its word.

Along with the Ramblers, I am worried that plans for the England Coast Path could be axed as part of government budget cuts.

The project is vital for rejuvenating our coastal communities and encouraging people to live healthier lives.

The South West Coast Path already generates over £300 million a year for the local economy. The recently opened Wales Coast Path was walked by 2.8 million people last year, bringing in an additional £16 million to the Welsh economy. The England Coast Path has the potential to bring similar benefits to our shores – boosting growth, creating jobs, and increasing tourism.

We need to call on the government to see this exciting project through and open up the coast for all.
