English Coastal Path in Lincolnshire - Progress of work October 2017

Progress of work October - November 2017.

The first stretch from Skegness to Mablethorpe was finally approved by the  Secretary of State in late  November and establishment works should be taking place over the winter and early spring with an opening target of Easter 2018. This short stretch of the coastline (26km) will be the first of the three stretches to be available.

The stretch from Sutton Bridge to Skegness includes the longest continuous section of the route where there is currently no other forms of legal or permissive access between Frampton and Gibraltar Point. The key concerns for this stretch are the environmental impact on the wildlife, and in particular the birdlife of The Wash. The second concern is crossing the River Steeping at Gibraltar Point at a location to be the least detrimental to the birdlife. It is increasingly likely that the existing Internal Drainage Board owned bridge will be refurbished and utilised for this purpose. The report for public comment is due to be published Winter/Spring 2017-18.

For the final stretch from Mablethorpe to the Humber, Natural England are undertaking the "walking the course" element of the scheme to establish the likely route that fits best with the parameters of the national scheme. They are also meeting with landowners that are likely to be affected prior to writing up the report. The key elements for the Lincolnshire County element of this stretch are the sensitivities around the seasonal seal population at Donna Nook and the surrounding coastline and a section of the coastline that had public rights removed to accommodate the former air base at North Somercotes
