Anyone living in Bournemouth has the opportunity to lease one of the new beach huts on Undercliff Drive from today.
The huts are traditional-style and painted in a range of contemporary shades. They are due to be fully installed by the end of summer.
Charmaine Andrews, Seafront Development Assistant for Bournemouth Borough Council, said: “Customers currently on the beach hut waiting lists were given the first opportunity to lease a new hut site, but a limited number of sites are now available to anyone who lives in Bournemouth. All sites will be leased on a first come, first served basis so I would urge people to be quick in contacting us if they would like one of the new sites as we expect there to be a great demand.”
The cost of leasing a site within this development from the Council is currently £750 per year, plus beach hut rates.
Residents interested in leasing a beach hut site should call the Seafront office on 01202 451781.
