Get Involved - the Future of Formby Point

Project
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 developing plans for how we can care for Formby's 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.  

If you’d like to comment on anything you find here, please email talkingformby@nationaltrust.org.uk

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 an additional voice for local people, where a cross-section of the community come together to discuss ideas and suggestions about managing the coastline.

Public Consultation Report on the Future of Formby Coast out now

Between July and September 2017 the National Trust at Formby invited people to share their thoughts about the future care of the coast. Almost 300 written and verbal comments detailing the hopes, concerns and ideas of local residents and visitors were recorded at a range of formal and informal public consultation events across Formby. The key topics and comments have now been summarised in a public consultation report which can be viewed in the Future of Formby Public Consultation article in the Get Involved part of our main webpage.
