Following the second national lockdown, East Devon District Council has taken the decision to close all beach huts from Thursday 5 November 2020 until Wednesday 2 December 2020.

You are not required to return the key or empty your hut.

We will not be charging you for your beach hut during this time period and a credit will automatically be applied to your account. There is no requirement for you to cancel your direct debit as this will automatically adjust. For customers who have paid in full, please provide your bank details to enable a refund of the credit - contact Sundry invoices on 01395 517492 or email

You can resume using your beach hut from Thursday 3 December 2020. If the guidance from central Government changes, or we go into a longer lockdown period/change tiers, we will be in touch to discuss beach hut provision going forward.
