    2023 Applications Now Closed


    There are six large and six small huts available for annual hire. Each year, the Council invites people to register their interest to purchase an annual hire. 


    Due to high demand those who currently hire an annual beach hut are unable to apply for one the following year.


    Please note: We are unable to accept requests for commercial use. 


    Please note: Repair works are being carried out on the Eastern Shelter during 2023. This work is scheduled for approximately 16 weeks from mid-February.

    Throughout the period of this work access through the shelter may be limited or modified. You will still be able to access the beach huts, but you may need to use the alternate access route across the top of the Eastern Shelter.

    There will be scaffolding in place during this work. The work will also involve the use of  powered machinery, plant and tools which will bring increased noise to this area of the Promenade.
