Garages

Renting a garage

We have temporarily closed our garage applications while we change to a new choice-based lettings system. This will be open for applications from Wednesday 26 September 2018.

The new system will allow you to see all available garages in the borough and these will be allocated to those who have been waiting the longest. If you choose to register for a garage using the new system, we will cross check your new application with any previous application we have for you and backdate your registration date.
