How to rent

Our tenants and leaseholders are given priority for garages, and can rent them for £9.71 per week. Private tenants or anyone renting more than two garages pay VAT, so the weekly amount is £11.65. You will need to pay four weeks’ rent in advance and set up a direct debit or standing order when you sign up for the garage.

Our garage sign up process is a digital with documents being sent and signed electronically.

All of our garages are rented for the purpose of storing vehicles only. They should not be used for business purposes.

    The information you provide on this form will be used to check your eligibility to become a “Garage tenancy holder”. The information you provide will be held on a waiting list within our Housing Management System.
    For further information regarding how we may use, store, process and share your personal information please see Our Privacy Policy.
