Beach hut owners and tenants - updates and advice

In response to the government’s latest plan on easing restrictions on the lockdown you will be able to use your beach hut from Wednesday 13 May  - as long as you do so in line with the guidance set out by government.   

If you choose to visit your beach hut it is important you understand the following information: 

Social distancing 

Please remember that social distancing and limiting contact with those outside of your household remains essential in controlling covid19. It is important you self-enforce the 2-metre social distancing. This will mean working with your neighbouring tenants to ensure you all keep safe in maintaining the 2-metre social distancing measures.

Please plan your visit carefully and if you are in any doubt, or feel you are unable to maintain social distancing then please do not use your hut. 

Social gatherings   

We know beach huts are usually a place for you to host gatherings with friends and family. It is important you do not host a social gathering at your beach hut at this time and that social distancing is applied. Please remember that social distancing and limiting contact with those outside of your household remains essential in controlling covid19.  

Keep the promenade clear 

It’s important that we are able to keep the promenade clear in order to allow everyone to safely maintain social distancing when visiting the beach.

If your beach hut is located on the promenade then we ask that you use the beach area for tables and chairs and do not place these on the promenade. This measure will help ensure your safety as well as the safety of other beach users. 

Catering outlets will gradually reopen in the coming weeks, offering a takeaway service only. Please avoid using cash.  

If the government tighten restrictions again we may have to restrict access to car parks and also to beach huts. 

Please remember that national restrictions prevent overnight stays anywhere that is not your main residence. This includes all beach huts in the BCP Council area.
