Details

On 18 March 2020, Natural England submitted a report to the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs setting out the proposals for improved access to the coast on the Isle of Wight (IOW).

Covid-19 update

Until further notice:

  • Natural England is extending the published deadlines for making comments on open proposals
  • view proposals online using the relevant link for the coastal stretch you’re interested in because local libraries are closed
  • email comments to Natural England because its offices are closed and post cannot be handled

Use the email address on the relevant objection or representation form for each stretch.

Natural England will publish a revised closing date for receiving comments when available.

Publication of further reports is on hold.

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
