Natural England has launched a consultation exercise relating to a stretch of the South West Coast Path between Cock Rock & Chesil Cliff near Croyde in Devon. The proposal to alter the route of the South West Coast Path has arisen because of safety concerns over a road crossing close to Oyster Falls.
The existing footpaths would still be available to walkers as they are public rights of way, however, if approved the main South West Coast Path will move further inland over Saunton Down. This means that all land to the seaward side would become part of the coastal margin including the fields below Croyde Road and the gorse slopes above Oyster Falls.
Members who own land or have another interest in this area should visit the consultation website for further information and see a map of the proposed changes to the route.
