Public Footpaths: Coastal Areas

The Government has announced Defra’s capital allocation for the next five years, and funding to complete the coastal path around England by 2020 will be protected. When complete, the path will be one of longest coastal walking routes in the world at around 2,700 miles in length.

We will publish the detailed allocation of funding in the Department’s Main Estimate early next year.
