If you’ve ever wanted to have a shack by the sea, now’s your chance. Our Council have just finished putting up some new sheds, and have opened the bidding.
However, in what is fast becoming their signature style, everything has been left to the last minute, leaving the rest of the world very little time.
The notice went up on the Council website on 15th April 2013, with viewings on 20th April, and a closing date of 3rd May 2013.
These little huts go for thousands of pounds a time – this is not the kind of buying decision that most people would want to rush, and not many people will have a few grand burning a hole in their pockets, just waiting for an impulse purchase to come along.
