What can store in a Council garage?

Garages are to be used for the storage of a motor vehicle only and not for commercial activities.

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

I no longer want my council garage, what do I need to do? 

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.
