Plans for the next stretch of the Essex Coastal Path will be unveiled today. The proposals for public access along the 37 mile stretch between Jaywick and Harwich are being published by Natural England.
If approved, this section of route will become part of the England Coast Path - the 2700 mile long distance walking route and England's newest National Trail currently being developed around the entire English coast.
"The England Coast Path is a hugely exciting project and will enable people to enjoy more of the fantastic coast on a new or improved route. We would like to thank everyone who has helped us in shaping these proposals which take into account the sensitivities of the area's special wildlife and the comments we've had from land owners and managers".
"The stretch of coast from Jaywick to Harwich will take walkers on a journey showcasing the amazing diversity of the Essex Coast - from its traditional seaside towns, to the spectacular natural beauty of Hamford Water and the historic port of Harwich. Over the next eight weeks we are inviting all organisations, landowners, farmers, local residents, and businesses to have their say on the proposals."
There is now a period of eight weeks for legal interests and members of the public to make objections or representations that the Secretary of State must take into account when considering whether to approve the proposals.
