Canterbury City Council has been receiving an increasing number of complaints about noise and anti-social behaviour caused by large groups who are using sublet beach huts.

It’s reviewing the sublet terms and conditions and is proposing to increase the subletting fee, and they’d like to know what you think.

This review only affects privately owned beach huts in West Beach, Herne Bay and Tankerton. It does not apply to the beach huts the council owns and lets out at Whitstable Harbour.

The council wants local people to have their say by completing the questionnaire by 5pm on Monday 3 October.

If you would like to see what questions you will be asked before you start filling in your answers, please click here to see a list of the questions.

Once they have analysed all the responses, they will be passed to councillors who will make a decision on what to do next.
