How do I rent a garage?

We have garages available to rent in a number of areas. In some places there are garages that are available immediately, for other areas you may have to join a waiting list until a vacancy becomes available.

To go on our garage waiting list you must live or work within the borough and be up to date with all payments due to the council.

When allocating garages we use a date order system. Priority is given to those who are a council tenant of one of our dwellings, however many garages are rented to other individuals where there are vacancies.

We will not offer you a garage to rent unless you are up to date with all payments due to the council. Additionally, we will terminate your garage tenancy if you do not keep up to date with all payments due to the council.

How much does a garage cost to rent?

We have two different rental rates for our garages that is dependant upon their location.

Our garages are either £7.69 or £8.71 a week for our council tenants and £9.23 or £10.43 a week for everyone else.

Garage rent is payable monthly in advance by direct debit.
