For many people, the main attraction of Hove is its beach and the enjoyment of walking along a wide, elegant Esplanade with its fine views and long rows of colourful beach huts.
The beach huts are an asset to both their owners and to residents of the whole city.
The council believes that the attractive image of the seafront should be maintained and, resources permitting, will continue to maintain and improve the Esplanade.
Why maintain your beach hut
The way beach huts owners maintain or replace their huts will have a significant impact on the future appearance of the Esplanade.
One reason why the Hove beach huts are admired is that they are largely the same except for their colourful front doors and it is vital to the character of the seafront that the uniformity is not lost.
Beach hut owners are required, within the terms and conditions of their licences, to repair or replace in accordance with certain details.
