Beach Huts

Where are the beach huts?

Fareham has two beach hut locations both at Hill Head, the first at Monks Hill which has 60 sites and the other at Cliff Road which has 111 sites.

How do I buy a beach hut?

After careful consideration it has been decided to discontinue the beach hut waiting list. With effect from the 30th September 2013, beach hut owners will be able to advertise and sell their beach huts privately on the open market. They may also publish their contact details on the Beach Huts for Sale page.

How much does it cost to rent the land on which the beach hut is sited?

The beach huts are privately owned, however each owner will enter into an agreement with the council for use of the site. This will include the payment of an annual plot rent and national non-domestic rates on the hut.

For Fareham residents the rent for 2021 is £488.78 per annum. This includes VAT at 5%.

For non-residents the rent for 2021 is £977.55 per annum. This includes VAT at 5%.

How much does it cost to purchase a beach hut?

It is between the vendor and prospective owner to negotiate a purchase price for the beach hut as the huts themselves are private property.  The Council is not involved in their individual valuations, however the price may vary according to size, condition and location.

Tell me about the Beach Hut Association

The local beach hut owners have set up an association which meet every two months to discuss any issues relating to the beach huts and surrounding area. For more information please contact

Do I need planning permission to replace my hut?

When a beach hut (or any property) is demolished then in planning terms it is treated as though it has never existed. As such a planning application is required.
