Coastal Path Easier Access Routes

About the project

The guides are hosted by Essex Local Access Forum. They are produced by volunteers working to shared ELAF guidance.

The main focus of the guides is on path suitability for wheeled users, including users of manual and motorised chairs (independent and accompanied), and users of mobility scooters and all-terrain vehicles.  The guides may though also benefit parents with young children in pushchairs, and older or mobility-restricted walkers.

All of the walk sections identified are step-free, level or mostly level, and free of man-made barriers. They are however mixed in character, terrain and length, and not all will suit all wheelers.  We recognise the wide range of ability within disability, and an increasingly wide range of all-terrain equipment expanding horizons for chair users. Our focus is on good quality information enabling users to make their own informed choices.
