Council garage features

  • The standard size of garages is 8ft x 12ft, although there are exceptions throughout the borough. 
  • T-handle type garage door locks are fitted as standard and two keys are supplied.  
  • External lighting is provided at some locations, however, the majority of our garage sites are remote and so are away from a power source. 

Cost of renting a council garage  

The cost of renting a council garage varies depending on the location and size of the garage. Currently, rents for council garages range from £6.77 to £10 per week (excluding VAT). 

Rent must be paid a week in advance. Garage tenants who have fallen into arrears and who persistently miss rent payments risk losing their garage.
