Consultation description

The documents above now include research reports that were used to assess potential effects of the proposals on birds at Chesil and the Fleet.

On 8 July 2015, 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 Dorset coast between Lyme Regis and Rufus Castle, Portland.

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

Comment on Natural England’s proposals

Representations and objections about the report can now be made and must be received by Natural England by 5pm on Wednesday 2 September 2015.
