Renting a Council garage

How much is a Council garage?

Prices vary according to location and who rents the garage:

  • Council tenants pay £12.98 per week
  • leaseholders pay 12.98 per week (VAT charges do not apply to garages rented under leaseholder arrangements)
  • non-Council tenants pay £15.58 (£12.98 plus VAT of £2.60) per week

In addition, a town centre surcharge applies to garages situated in certain locations* under certain circumstances. If you are considering renting a garage in a town centre location please contact us for further clarification on surcharges. 

*The town centre surcharge applies to:

  • Abyssinia Road
  • Malakoff Close
  • Middlegate
  • Patterson Close
  • The Conge
  • Yarmouth Way


Please note in all cases four weeks advance payment will be required when renting a garage. You will be asked to make this payment when you sign the licence agreement and collect the keys.

If you are a Council tenant and rent a garage from us, your rent for the garage will be separate to your home account. If you go into arrears with your garage account, we will end your garage licence by giving one week's written notice. We will also consider ending your garage licence if you go into arrears with your home account, in order to sustain your tenancy. If the keys are not returned, we can change the locks when repossessing the garage.

If you are a non-Council tenant your rent should be paid four weekly in advance by Direct Debit (PDF) [96KB] (opens new window) or standing order (PDF) [83KB] (opens new window) . If you go into arrears we will give you one week's notice to terminate the garage licence.
