Coastal access (England): the procedure explained


This NFU Business Guide provides information on the King Charles III England Coast Path and how it is likely to affect landowners.

This guide covers:

  • the process that Natural England must follow when creating sections of the England Coast Path;
  • the maintenance of the England Coast Path;
  • the access rights that the public will have over your land; and
  • how best you can manage the safety of those members of the public when they are accessing your land.   

The NFU would recommend that you seek advice from a land agent and/or solicitor, in the event that you are approached by Natural England with proposals relating to the England Coast Path.
