Garages

There are a number of garages available to rent at various sites across the borough. You can use your garage to store a vehicle, motorcycle or bicycles, or low value items that you may not have space for in your home or garden shed.

Our garages can be rented by council tenants, private tenants, homeowners or out of borough residents. Due to the aged construction of the garages it is not advised to use them for the storage of high cost or irreplaceable possessions.

Apply to rent a garage

We will confirm if there is availability at your preferred site. If there are no garages available at your preferred location you can join a waiting list. We’ll contact you when a garage becomes available.

Apply for a garage

If you are a council tenant you will be unable to rent a garage if your property is in rent arrears. Any arrears will need to be cleared before a garage can be offered.
