Click to expandHow we allocate garages

All applicants join a waiting list.

Garages are allocated from the waiting list based on the following criteria:

  • Council tenants are considered before non-tenants
  • Council tenants with rent arrears on their property account will not be considered until they have paid these arrears in full 
  • Preference will be given to tenants who have a mobility vehicle 
  • Garages that are next to multi-story flats are allocated to tenants living in the flats in the first instance 
  • If no waiting list exists then garages are let on a first come first served basis 
  • Only one garage is allocated per applicant unless there are no other applicants on the waiting list for that area
