Detail of outcome
On 27 March 2017 the Secretary of State announced her decision to approve a stretch of the England Coast Path in Cumbria around Walney Island.
See the section 52 notice for Walney Island for more information.
On 26 September 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 on Walney Island.
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
