Rent a council garage

Garages waiting list temporarily closed

From 2 October 2023, due to high demand and a long waiting list for garages, we have temporarily closed the waiting list and are not accepting new applications. We apologise for any inconvenience, and will update this notice when the waiting list reopens. If we received an application from you before 2 October 2023, we will continue processing it and will contact you in due course.


We provide garages and garage plots for rent across the borough.

Garages are either in standalone blocks or under properties such as maisonettes or flats. Garage plots are available to rent either for parking or if you would like to install your own garage.
