Beach huts may soon return after long time campaigning

Beach huts may soon return after long time campaigning
The proposals

PAR Beach may soon see the return of the much-loved beach huts in a bid to “reignite” residents’ love of the area.

The beach huts were once a familiar site at the beach but they were left to go to ruin over the years.

Now 22 beach huts look set to be sited at the beach.

Cornwall councillor for Par and St Blazey Gate, and chair of the Par Beach Management Group, Jordan Rowse, said: “I'm absolutely delighted that we may soon see a return of the beach huts to Par Beach and they are something that have been sorely missed in recent years.

“Many people will remember the days when the beach huts used to be prominent on the beachfront, but over the years, as the beach developed, unfortunately the beach huts were left to dwindle.

“As chairman of the Par Beach Management Group, bringing the beach huts back to the beach is something the group has been working on for some time now and I inherited the decision to bring the beach huts back.

“We are initially looking at a figure of 22 beach huts after local consultation and, while I appreciate there may be some concerns over the council’s decision to spend money on the beach huts, I must now work with the council to ensure that beach huts are available for residents.

“It’s no secret that people have become vocal in their options of the beach of late, and I hope that the return of the much-loved beach huts will we reignite the locals’, and visitors’, love of the beach.”
