Application Eligibility

Anyone can apply for a Council garage but priority is given to Council tenants, who must have a clear rent account to be offered a garage.

Start of Tenancy

Garage tenancies start on the first day of each month.

Price of Rents

The current rent from April 2019 to March 2020 is £37.64 per month.

If you are a Council Tenant you do not have to pay VAT on your garage rent. If you are not a Council Tenant you will have to pay VAT on top of the rental charge.

Storage

Garages can be used for motor vehicles and general storage only, and not for commercial activities.

Petrol or other flammable materials must not be stored in the garage.

Ending a Garage Tenancy

A month's notice in writing (letter or email) is required if you want to terminate the tenancy of your garage.  Your keys will need to be handed in on the last day of the month and your garage must be empty.  A charge will be made if the garage needs to be cleared after the tenancy has ended.

Garage Strategy

The provision of garages is an integral housing related service that Broxtowe provides. The Garage Strategy seeks to provide a framework for future development, use of garages, the sites where garages are situated and the possible rental income from such sites.
