Find out about objections to proposals to improve coastal access at Littlesea and West Fleet near Abbotsbury in west Dorset.
On 8 July 2015, Natural England submitted a report to the Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs setting out the proposals for improved access to the coast between Lyme Regis and Rufus Castle, Portland.
The independent planning inspector appointed by the Secretary of State (‘the appointed person’) was minded to determine that these proposals do not strike a fair balance in respect to objections received concerning land at:
- Littlesea on the East Fleet near Weymouth (from Bourne Leisure Ltd for Haven Leisure Ltd)
- West Fleet between Rodden and Abbotsbury (from Ilchester Estates)
The objection by Ilchester Estates is to be considered at a public inquiry on Tuesday 1 November 2016. See the notice for details.
