Apply for a garage

Anyone can apply to rent a Council garage or garage plot, but we give priority to Council tenants.

You will not be offered a garage or garage plot if you have rent arrears

To apply for a garage or garage plot, complete an application online or download the garage application form (pdf, 70kb) and return to us in the post. You will be put on the waiting list and we will advise you when your turn is reached.

Apply for a garage

Garages cost £9.29 per week for our tenants and £11.154 for private tenants and leaseholders.

Garage plots are £1.20 per week for our tenants and £1.44 for private tenants and leaseholders.

A small caveat to these prices are the garages at Chatsworth Road they are: SDDC tenants are charged at £10.85 per week. Non SDDC tenants have the VAT included which makes it £13.02 per week

All Council-owned garages are to be used for the sole purpose of parking your vehicle and not as a storage facility.

We require 28 days’ notice, in writing, if you want to give up your garage. When you give us back the keys the garage should be empty and swept through. We will charge you if we have to clear it.

Arrears

Where garage rent arrears rise to an unacceptable level or an account is in arrears for too long, we may decide to repossess the garage.

Unlike houses and flats, we do not have to apply to courts for a Possession Order.

We have a duty to recover all rent owed to us to fund the services we provide. The Government also sets us limits on outstanding rent.
