Beach huts

Bright, cheery and convenient, beach huts make a great base from which to enjoy our coastline.

Arun owned beach huts 

We own 92 beach huts in the district – 60 in Littlehampton and 32 in Felpham.  

All our huts are made from composite materials making them more robust, secure and needing less maintenance than wooden huts.  

Costs 

The huts are let out on an annual lease – we do not offer daily, weekly or monthly rentals.  

The cost of a lease is £1056.40 (including VAT) per year for residents of Arun. Non-residents are charged £1267.68 (including VAT) per year.  

Waiting List

The waiting list is currently closed.  

Only 3 or 4 huts become available each year, and the waiting list is over 300 people long at present. Due to the high demand, we are exploring opportunities to install more huts in the district.

If the waiting list is re-opened, we will update this page with how to join. 

Repairs 

If your council-owned beach hut needs a repair, you can report this to us via email: property.estates@arun.gov.uk 

Privately owned beach huts 

There are 152 privately owned beach huts in the district.  

These are bought and sold through estate agents, but owners pay an annual fee to us for the lease of the land. 

If you wish to buy a beach hut, you should check local estate agent listings, or specialist beach hut sales. 

Costs 

The cost of a lease is £542.57 (including VAT) per year.
