Stage 5: Open
If you are planning a walk on the ECP, check Natural England’s interactive access maps for details of local access restrictions and coast path diversions which may apply at certain times.
Coastal access rights normally apply to all land that is coastal margin - including any land seaward of the route - unless it falls into a category of excepted land.
Natural England’s report to the Secretary of State (which has no modifications) is available to view on Natural England’s archive website.
Use the links below to see details of the Secretary of State’s decision to approve Natural England’s proposals and for guidance on your rights and responsibilities if the England Coast Path passes through your land.
