England Coast Path Folkestone to Ramsgate


On 23 March 2015 the Secretary of State announced her decision to approve a stretch of the England Coast Path in Kent between Folkestone and Ramsgate. This follows a hearing led by an appointed person from the Planning Inspectorate, held on 20 January 2015.Work is now underway to prepare the new stretch of coast path for public use. The first step is to contact owners and occupiers of the affected land to discuss the design and location of any new infrastructure which is needed, such as signs and gates.When preparations are complete, new access rights will come into force along the route and adjoining spreading room. This is expected to be ready in May 2016.
