Work to install 20 new beach huts on the Isle of Sheppey is almost complete.
The huts have been installed by the council in Leysdown, following the success of an earlier scheme in Minster-on-Sea.
Located by the sea wall at the grassed Shellness Road car park, the huts will give uninterrupted sea views for their future occupants to enjoy.
Cllr James Hunt, deputy cabinet member for regeneration at the council, said:
"The success of the beach huts we installed in Minster showed that there was a huge demand for these kinds of facilities on the Island.
"They don’t just offer something for local people, but they also help attract visitors and boost interest in an area people might not have thought about visiting before.
"When we consulted on where we might put new huts, Leysdown was a popular choice with its wonderful beach and amazing views.
"There’s already been a lot of interest since they started to go up, and the waiting list continues to grow, which just shows the popularity of the Island as a great place to visit and relax."
The huts will be a combination of huts to rent or huts for sale, and will cost £10,000 to buy – plus £375 a year ground rent – or £1,200 per year to rent.
