A Right to Roam around Our Coasts

Apr 08,2007 SACN


The government is to consult on access to England's coastline.
 
Walkers are to be given the "right to roam" around the entire coastline of Britain, under government proposals.

At present the public only has access to around half the English coastline.

But Environment Secretary David Miliband told the Independent on Sunday he wanted to create an "access corridor" to open it all up.

The paper says the corridor will take about 10 years to establish at a cost of about £50 million, but adds it is likely to be strongly opposed.
