Applying for a Council Garage
If you would like to be considered for a garage, please complete the online garage application form or the downloadable application form and return to us. Please note all our garages are let on a first come, first served bases with Council tenants having initial priority on the waiting list. Our garages are for vehicles only.
Over the last 18 months, during the various lockdowns caused by the global pandemic, we were forced to reduce our housing tenant services and, as a result, did not let any garages during this period. Our officers are currently in the process of visiting and identifying garages that are suitable for re-let across the district. Once these visits have been completed, we will be working through shortlists and contacting successful applicants.
Should you submit an application your application will be processed in due course, please do not contact us.
