Garage lettings

Service Outline

The council owns garages throughout the borough, on private streets and in housing estates. We rent these to tenants, leaseholders and private individuals.

The garages can also be used for storage purposes. We offer value for money, flexibility and freedom.

In exceptional circumstances we will allocate out of priority and date order, e.g. for persons in receipt of mobility/disability allowances.

Waiting lists for garages are managed by the area housing offices. Please apply online to register your interest.
