Garages

Due to the impact of Covid 19, we are currently postponing the letting of new garages. However we are still accepting garage applications through the MyStAlbans customer portal.  Garages will be allocated in date order from the receipt of application when the restrictions to movement are lifted.

We own and manage garages on a number of sites and rent these out to private residents and businesses, as well as to council tenants and leaseholders.

Garages let to council tenants, council leaseholders and private residents

Garages are let for the sole purpose of keeping a vehicle only. Please note that council tenants and wherever possible, residents living in the vicinity of any garage site, will be given priority when offering a garage for let.

Here is information to help you:

  • Apply for a council garage
  • Terminate your garage lease
  • Report a repair
  • Report a fly tipping issue

Garage locations

How much do they cost?

How to apply for a garage

If you are a council tenant and your rent account is in arrears or have any former tenant arrears, you will not be considered for a garage.

When we have received your application and if there is a garage available in your area of choice you will be offered this within five working days.

If we do not have a garage in your area available, you will be added to the waiting list and sent written confirmation of this. You do not have to accept any garage you are offered, and you will be put back on the waiting list.

Returning the garage keys Toggle accordion

The outgoing tenant is responsible for making sure that the keys are returned to the council.  They can be handed in at the reception desk at the council offices or returned in the post using a tracked postal service such as recorded or special delivery.

If you do not return the keys, or if the keys are lost, we will charged for the cost of having to change the lock on the garage.
