Get Involved - the Future of Formby Point

Future Formby

Welcome to these pages, which keep you updated with the Formby Point Project, and help you get involved with the future care of the Formby coast.

We aspire to improve access, conservation and facilities along this dynamic and ever changing coastline, loved by many and home to rare wildlife. These plans will affect you and the future generations who come to enjoy this special place.

We want to involve all those who love the Formby coast in shaping these plans. Here you will find information about upcoming consultation events and discover what we talked about at previous events.  Our conversations are happening in lots of different ways. We have recorded the views of hundreds of Formby residents and visitors at open days and drop in events. Our Community Involvement Panel is an additional voice for local people, where a cross-section of the community discuss ideas and suggestions about managing the coast.


A Vision for Lifeboat Road  A report from the latest consultations is now available to view. The National Trust asked four architects to produce posters illustrating proposals for a new cafe and toilets at Lifeboat Road. Take a look at how local people responded:
