The Marine and Coastal Access (MCA) Act 2009 Act places a duty on Natural England [NE] to use its powers to secure a long distance walking route around the English coast (the trail) and an accessible margin of land in association with the route, where people will be able to spread out, explore, rest or picnic (spreading room).
The East Riding of Yorkshire was in the first group of six areas where (NE) intends to implement a scheme. Regrettably, the East Riding of Yorkshire Council declined to participate in the project.
Notwithstanding ERYC's non co-operation a team of volunteers from our Area surveyed the coastline from Ravenscar to the Humber Bridge and produced a report with recommendations.
Commissioned by Ramblers CO, the report describing Ramblers proposals for the English Coastal Route in the EY&D Area was sent to Natural England.
