The Parish Council has received details of the proposals from Natural England about the proposed Coastal Path.
After the general documents, the section that specifically affects KS is in ABD 6 of the documentation on the Government’s website. This is all accessible through the link below (unfortunately, ABD 6 is too big to upload to this website).
Your Parish Councillors are considering this material over the next month and will be discussing this at their meeting on Thursday 12th September prior to submitting comments.
As an individual you are welcome to comment directly or, if you would prefer, please talk to one of your Councillors about your views or email me and I will share with the Council.
Steve Dixon – Parish Clerk, August 2019.
Document received from Natural England
On 25th July 2019 Natural England submitted its report to the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs setting out our proposals for improved access to the coast. These proposals form part of a programme to establish a continuous walking route around England’s coastline, as set out in the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009 (MCA).
Further details about the proposals can be found at
By visiting the coastal access webpage for this stretch of coast you will find all the information you need including the following documents and forms:
- The Overview report and eight length Reports with accompanying maps
- The Nature Conservation Assessment
- The Habitats Regulations Assessment
- The form that must be used for making a representation
- Guidance notes to help you complete the representation form
All representations about the report must be received by Natural England no later than midnight on Thursday 19th September 2019. We cannot consider any responses received after this deadline.
Before deciding whether you wish to make a representation, you may find it helpful to consult the detailed guidance which is published at:
The Secretary of State will make a decision about the report when all representations and objections have been considered. Establishment of the new access arrangements will not begin until that decision is made.
