Get Involved - the Future of Formby Point

Future Formby

Welcome to these pages, which aim to keep you updated with what’s happening about the future of Formby Point and how you can get involved.

The National Trust is starting to develop future plans for how we can care for this special coastline in the coming decades. These plans will affect you and the future generations who come to enjoy this special place.

We aspire to improve access, conservation and facilities along this dynamic and ever changing coastline, loved by many and home to rare wildlife.

We want to involve the many people who love this special place in shaping these plans. Here you will find information about upcoming consultation events and discover what we talked about at previous events.   Have a look the information here to see the issues we are facing and the questions we are asking.The Future of Formby Point (PDF / 4.35546875MB) download

Talking to local people

Our ongoing conversations are happening in lots of different ways including meetings, Open Days and one-to-one conversations. Our Community Involvement Panel is also an additional voice for local people, where a cross-section of the community come together to discuss ideas and suggestions about managing the coastline.
