It is important for us to achieve clarity about the main issues and opportunities on this stretch of coast - we need to be able to identify the pivotal locations on the stretch where particular issues (i.e. estuaries, major developments, environmental sensitivities, areas of significant erosion, where improvements for people with reduced mobility would be most beneficial etc) could have a significant influence on the choices for alignment of the trail along the coast.

Detailed alignment work will not be conducted until we meet with owners and occupiers on site later this year.

We are keen to gather relevant and useful information from a variety of sources and therefore invite you to submit your comments on the main issues and opportunities using this form. If you would like to receive the digital Area of Search shape file, please get in touch.

Please send the completed form back by e-mail to the following address: [email protected] by Thursday 24th March 2016.

If you have any queries or would like any further information then please contact the North West Coastal access Team via the above e-mail address.
