The Southwold Beach Hut Owners Association was formed in 1993 as a formal organisation representing beach hut owners. We exist to act as a link between authorities and our members. This could be for -
- Cliff erosion.
- Sea wall repairs.
- Communicating directly with East Suffolk Council (ESC), Southwold Town Council (STC), East Suffolk Services Ltd (ESSL), Coastal Management Team (CMT), letting agencies, RNLI lifeguards, PSPO Officers.
- Keysafe combination storage in the members area can be accessed by the Committee so that if any services (maintenance, fire, etc.) need to gain access in an emergency they can do so by contacting the Committee.
- Resolving litter collection, unsociable behaviour, vandalism, beach shower and other issues.
Our AGM is held in August. Members can raise issues for general discussion during the meeting and socialise afterwards while enjoying snacks and refreshments. This is both a business and social event.
Committee members are elected at the AGM and we meet four or five times per year. Our Chair issues a newsletter two or three times a year to keep members up to date with beach hut related issues.
The Southwold Beach Hut Owners Association are also members of the "Southwold Beach Committee" who meet twice per year to act as a contact point for matters relating to Southwold Beach and the prom.
Annual Association membership of £12 per annum is payable by standing order. This entitles members to a 5% discount on their rent payable to East Suffolk Council and a 10% discount from beach hut insurance companies listed in the members area of our website.
