Cancel your tenancy agreement

You have the right to cancel your agreement giving at least one month's notice. Should you wish to do this, please inform the beach office.

Licence hire charges

If you pay by direct debit you can pay your licence fee monthly over six months (from January to June).

If you already pay by direct debit, the fees will be automatically paid from your account. However, your direct debit instruction will not cover payment of any non-domestic rates due on your beach hut. When you receive your rates bill, you will be advised how you can pay this (if applicable).

Licence instalment payments must be made on the due date or you will have to pay the full outstanding amount immediately or risk losing your beach hut licence.

Beach hut bills

If you are a beach hut tenant, you will receive two separate bills for letting a beach hut from us annually.

One will be from us and will appear as Borough of Poole, for license hire charges.

The other will be from HM Revenue and Customs, for your non-domestic rates.

Non-domestic rates

HM Revenue & Customs individually rate beach huts (throughout the UK) for non-domestic rates. Beach hut tenants pay non-domestic rates separately, where these apply.

You may be able to reduce your bill you can claim small business rate relief (SBRR), providing you don't pay business rates elsewhere. This will reduce the rates element of the beach hut hire by 100%. Instructions on how to apply for this reduction will be sent with your bill.

For all enquiries about your bills, please speak to Stour Valley and Poole Partnership:
