12 more Langland beach huts set for timely upgrade
WORK on reviving even more famous beach huts on Langland Bay is now under way.
Swansea Council has started refurbishing 12 more of the picturesque huts in time for the spring.
It’s the final phase of a scheme that will have seen 50 of the 79 huts upgraded to further improve the look of a key Swansea Bay seaside resort.
The scheme is being funded by offering people a 10-year lease on the new-look huts. All 50 huts forming part of the project have now been snapped up.

Swansea Council is also continuing to maintain the other 29 huts not forming part of the refurbishment scheme. These will be let on a seasonal basis by way of a draw for three-month periods.
Staff from the Corporate Building and Property Services team are undertaking the revamp. Work on this final phase of the scheme should be complete by the end of February next year.
Councillor Nick Bradley, Swansea Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration, said: “The beach huts at Langland Bay are part of our history that enhance the character of one of our most popular seaside resorts.
“But in recent times they’d started to show their age after being exposed to the elements for many years. This refurbishment scheme has already helped restore many of them to their original glory and it’s great news that 12 more are soon to follow suit.
“The interest in the 10-year lease scheme illustrates the level of demand there still is in the beach huts, despite the difficult economic climate.
“Our staff in corporate building and property services have done a terrific job in rebuilding them, but this will be the final phase of refurbishment work there. It’s important we have at least 25 other regularly-maintained huts overlooking Langland Bay that can continue to be let on a three- month basis so everyone has a chance to experience them.”
