Work is well underway on the England Coast Path - a new National Trail around England’s entire coast. For the first time people will have the right of access to walk around and enjoy our open coast. This will also bring benefits to local communities and provide economic opportunities for businesses.

Highcliffe to Calshot Stretch

Work to identify exactly where the Coast Path between Highcliffe and Calshot will be aligned is just beginning and it is hoped that your new local stretch will open in 2018. This will provide part of a continuous coastal route allowing people to enjoy the diverse range of landscapes that Hampshire has to offer. Work on the stretch of coast between Lulworth Cove and Highcliffe in Dorset is also underway and work on the stretch between Calshot and Gosport is expected to start 2016-2017.

Local council officers are providing Natural England with expert advice and helping to make sure there is full consultation with local interests during the development of the route.

Please come and learn more about the project and share your views with us at these public drop-in sessions in your area. We look forward to seeing you there. A leaflet is available for download here.
