How much does renting a council garage cost?

The weekly charge for council tenants for the year April 2019 – March 2020 is £8.08, with four rent free weeks. The charge should be paid weekly with the property rent.

Non-council tenants are charged £118.72 inc. VAT quarterly.


Can I rent more than one garage?

You may be allowed to rent more than one garage if you’ve kept up your rent payments. You’re allowed up to two garages if there’s a long waiting list, and up to three garages in a low demand area.

How can I apply for a council garage?

You can either apply online or ask for a paper application form at your local housing office.

What happens after I’ve applied?

In some areas garages are in low demand and you could be offered a garage straight away, otherwise you‘ll be placed on the waiting list.

Garages are offered to the applicant who’s been on the waiting list the longest first. Council tenants are given priority when applying, however if there are no council tenants that need the garage, non-council applicants are then considered in application date order.

When you’re chosen for a garage, we’ll send you a letter to confirm this. We’ll also send the garage conditions of tenancy which you’ll need to sign, once you’ve signed you can pick up the keys.

What if the garage needs repairs?

If you’re renting a council garage, repairs are carried out by our housing services. You’ll be recharged for any damage to the garage caused accidentally, deliberately or because of neglect by you or other members of your household, visitors, pets or contractors hired by you.
