41 kms of the England coast path between Sea Palling and Weybourne in Norfolk has been approved by the Secretary of State.
The England Coast Path initiative is something that people want to see, and everyone can benefit from it – from ramblers to day visitors and local businesses.
Following a consultation with local Councils, landowners, residents and Natural England, everyone will soon be able to enjoy this stretch of coast as a clearly marked and well managed route.
– Pamela Abbott, Natural England’s Area Manager for Norfolk and Suffolk
“Having worked so closely with our partners on all the details, we’re delighted that the planning will become a reality and that practical improvements can soon be made along this spectacular stretch of coast.
“It’s tremendously exciting to know that implementing this first stretch of the England Coast Path in Norfolk is contributing to the creation of one of the longest coast paths in the world. Encouraging more people – both local residents and visitors – to enjoy our coastline will bring many benefits to our local economy too.”
