Find out about Natural England's proposals to improve coastal access in Cumbria and how to submit a representation or objection.
On 25 July 2016, Natural England submitted a report to the Secretary of State for the Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) setting out our proposals for improved access to the Cumbrian coast between Gretna and Allonby.
All representations and objections will be considered before the Secretary of State makes a final decision about the report.
The report is available as a series of separate documents. You should:
- read the overview which includes background information to help you understand the proposals and maps
- use the index map to find the relevant chapter for the length of coast you are interested in
- open the corresponding chapter of the report for more information
