Renting a garage

We have secure garages for rent across the borough for parking or storage

Anyone can apply to rent a garage, but we prioritise applications from people living on that estate and always give higher priority to disability parking Blue Badge holders.

Some advantages of renting a garage include:

  • You can keep your vehicle or stored items secure and under cover.
  • Estate garages are cheaper than commercial rents for other private garages or storage facilities.
  • Some insurers offer lower premiums for vehicles that are garaged.
  • Several motorbikes can be kept in one garage.
  • You can also keep vehicle accessories in the garage.

Garage rental costs depend on vehicle emissions or if you are using the garage for storage purposes. Please see our table of costs.

Garage storage

Garages can be rented for the storage of personal or business goods, provided they are not flammable or perishable items. You will be given a letting agreement to read and sign.

An annual check will be carried out, as a condition of renewal of the agreement.

  • Door width 2.10 metres
