Defra issued the consultation paper “Consultation on Proposals to improve access to the English coast” on 19 June 2007. It seeks views on improving coastal access.
The closing date for responses is 11 September 2007. More info at: www.defra.gov.uk/wildlife-countryside/issues/accesscoast.htm
says "The seaside should be a perfect place to cycle, but we’re only
allowed to cycle on 7% of the English coast. The Government wants to
create an ‘access corridor’ around the entire English coastline – but
it’s only thinking of walkers. CTC wants cyclists to be included". Want
