We're one step closer to round England coastal path

"Everyone loves a day at the seaside", said David Williams, Labour's Parliamentary Candodate for Crewe and Nantwich, "whether it’s sitting on a beach, striding along a cliff top or poking around in rock pools, I’m sure we all have happy memories of the coast."

Labour’s Marine and Coastal Access Bill won support today when it came before the House of Commons. The Bill will deliver a continuous path around England’s coast. So for the first time everyone will be able to access England's coastline through a carefully planned route.

David Williams concluded, "I have been a long-time campaigner for greater access to our countryside. The prospect of an uninterupted path around England's beautiful coastline is very exciting.

"This summer I plan to walk sections of the South West Costal Path taking in the coves, cliffs and beaches of Devon and Cornwall. It will be great to have access all of our wonderful and diverse coastline".
