To be eligible to rent a hut you must be resident in Gosport or Lee-On-The-Solent (proof to be provided). Huts are rented on a three year term and re-entry on the waiting lists, for both sites, can be requested after this period. Rents are charged annually on the anniversary of the date of occupation.
The rates effective from 1 January 2020 are £900 per annum or £675 per annum for senior citizens and disabled persons.
If a tenant wishes to terminate the tenancy they may do so, giving the Council three months notice in writing to secure a full refund of any rent owed.
Disabled residents are able to hire a hut at Stokes Bay from late spring bank holiday in May to August bank holiday at a cost of £20.00 per week. A refundable security key deposit of £5.00 is required. Applications are invited from 1st February each year and applicants may hire up to two weeks but only one week can be guaranteed, so a preference is required.
At present the waiting list for a hut at Stokes Bay is around eight years and at Lee on the Solent around three years. Applications may be made to be on both lists at the same time.
For further information or if you would like to be placed on the waiting lists, please contact the Property Services Section on 023 9254 5564 or email email@example.com so that an application form can be posted to you.
