We have received an Access newsletter from DEFRA, in which DEFRA comments
“This newsletter specifically refers to a further consultation on an order for the Isle of Wight under the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009. It is to give a second opportunity for people to state (or re-state) their views on whether or not the Government should make an order. The consultation particularly invites views on the degree of priority that should be accorded to the making of an order, and the implementation of any coastal access proposals for the Isle of Wight as against the rest of the coastal access programme, given limited funds for the overall programme.”
SPS Council will be considering the issue at the next meeting in February.
