The Association was formed by several hut owners in November 2001 to look after the best interests of hut owners at Thorpe Bay and Shoebury Common.

There are approximately three quarters of hut owners registered as Members of SBHOA and we hope to increase this number each year.

The Association is run by a Committee of hut owners and new Committee Members are always welcome.  So, if you own a beach hut in Southend and wish to be actively involved in SBHOA please contact the Association using the "Contact Us" page on this site.

The Committee meets every other month and discusses topics and issues relevant to beach hut owners.  SBHOA works closely with hut owners and Southend Borough Council and makes representations to the Council as and when required.  The Council likewise invites Members of the SBHOA Committee to comment on relevant matters.  The Association also works closely with Southend Police on ways to limit beach hut crime.

Members of SBHOA have the opportunity to take advantage of a discounted insurance scheme to cover their huts, including a reduced Policy Excess.  This insurance is placed with a reputable Company in the City of London, and is brokered by Towergate InsuranceOther brokers, insurers and schemes are available

All Committee Members are voluntary and dedicate a percentage of their own time in carrying out SBHOA matters.  So please be patient when you have a query.
