Access restricted to Lyme Regis cliff
PUBLISHED: 15:00 24 February 2016
Pedestrian access along the top of Lyme Regis’s East Cliff sea wall, east of the junction with the path from Charmouth Road car park, is to be restricted to emergencies only until further notice.
This is due to ongoing minor landslips.
Barriers will be closed and warning signs are in place at frequent points from the beach and walkways.
Councillor John Russell, environmental protection and assets portfolio holder for West Dorset District Council, said: “The nature of our coastline is that the risk of mud and rock slides is always present.
“We strongly recommend the public take heed of signs.”
Councillor Daryl Turner, ward member for Lyme Regis and Charmouth, added that there are ‘other options’ available to reach the shoreline.
