Waiting Lists For Beach Huts

Information on how our waiting lists are managed

Joining a waiting list

All waiting lists are currently closed. However, when they open you can join by completing an application form and paying the £30 joining fee.

Waiting lists are restricted to Bournemouth residents only.

The exceptions where anyone can apply to be on a waiting list is Bournemouth East.

Annual Beach Hut Sites

An Annual Site is where you rent a plot on a yearly basis from Bournemouth Council. You will need to provide and maintain your own hut, as well as agreeing to the Annual Beach Hut Site Licence. Some sites are subject to a restricted licence.

  • Alum Chine

Can I join more than 1 list?

Yes. You can join as many waiting lists as you wish at a joining fee of £30 per list.

Please note that once you accept a beach hut site in one area, you will be removed from all other waiting lists. 

When I get offered a site

When you reach the top of the waiting list and a site becomes available, we’ll email you to let you know. 

You’ll have 14 days to accept or decline the offer. If you accept the offer, you’ll be given information on how to sign up and how to pay for your site. 

If we don’t receive a response within 14 days, we’ll assume you don’t want the site and will offer it to the next person on the waiting list.

If I decline the offer or don’t respond

We’ll only offer you 3 sites whilst on a waiting list. If you decline all 3 offers or don’t respond, you’ll be removed from the list and will have to rejoin by paying the £30 joining fee.
