Business opportunities for beach concessions

We are now inviting business owners to register their interest in taking up a beach concession for the 2022 summer season and beyond. We will consider business plans for a range of ideas to include, but not limited to beachfront venues, watersports hire and retail outlets. 

In your offer, the Estates team will be looking for:

  • A workable business plan, a clear product offer and sound financial planning
  • Consistent product quality, range of products and trading hours
  • Environmentally considerate and sustainable business practice
  • An attractive retail unit (with financial allowance to invest in a fixed unit if required)
  • A full trading history 

If your offer is accepted, you will need to provide the following documents:

  • Risk assessments specific to your business/location
  • Valid public liability insurance and employer’s liability insurance to the value of at least £5m
  • Equipment safety certificates for seafront or water-based concessions
  • Environmental food safety and hygiene certificates for food and drink concessions

To register your expression of interest, email propertyandassetmanagement@thanet.gov.uk before the deadline of Friday 6 May. There is no guarantee that a business proposal will be regarded as acceptable or be acceptable in a particular location.
