The rugged coastline of the Western Lake District is one of its unique assets and offers an ideal destination for visitors looking for both adventure and tranquillity.
With this in mind the South Copeland Coastal Team have a vision to create the conditions for a vibrant coastal economy through the development of new and improved cycling and rights of way access infrastructure between the towns of Seascale and Millom. These new and improved cycling/walking routes will be focused on a new Sustrans National Cycle Network route along the coastal plain which will enable the significant development of cycling tourism as well as providing better connectivity between isolated communities and the promotion of healthy active lifestyles.
We intend that the further development of the visitor economy as a result of increased cycling tourism and associated activity will encourage business growth in the hospitality sector and prompt the development of new and existing amenities, attractions and events which support and diversify the visitor economy. This in turn will encourage the expansion of work and skills opportunities and make South Copeland coastal communities more sustainable places to live, work and visit.
