More beach huts being looked at for cliff-top spot
A parish council is considering adding more beach huts to a scenic cliff-top spot as it looks to new ways to make ends meet.
Some six cabins sit looking out to sea at Scratby where owners pay just £75 a year to rent the land.
Adrian Peck, chairman of Ormesby with Scratby Parish Council, said they had taken issue with one of the owners over the dilapidated state of their hut, which had prompted them to review the whole offer.
He said there were once 11, but there could be an opportunity to add more and also increase fees in a cold economic climate which was seeing both county and borough councils cutting back.
