Some huts in Mablethorpe home of the excellant Bathing Beauties Beach Hut Festival are getting a chance
A MAJOR investment programme is set to breathe new life into Mablethorpe’s ageing beach chalets.
East Lindsey District Council is to refurbish a number of huts on the resort’s south promenade and has unveiled a vibrant design for several new huts aimed at providing more opportunities for private ownership.

In October 2011, five beach huts in Queen’s Park Promenade were destroyed by fire and as a result an additional five huts adjoining the site will be removed to tidy up the area.
Four new-style huts are to be built at the rear of Queen’s Garden square which will be available for hire in 2012, and act as “show huts” for potential buyers. It is likely the new huts will cost around £12,000 for a 20-year lease.
The new huts will be designed to provide visual appeal all year round, have a log cabin style construction and be less susceptible to vandalism.
