Whitehaven to Allonby coastal path consultations ends

A three month consultation into whether a coastal path between Whitehaven and Allonby in west Cumbria should be created ended today.

The 36km stretch would be the first section in North West to be enhanced as part of plans for a path around the English coastline.

Landowners, farmers, businesses and residents took part. Natural England will use the feedback from the consultation to finalise proposals for the new route, which will then be submitted to the Secretary of State for approval.
