Bournemouth Council

Renting a Garage

We have garages and garage plots available to rent

Anyone can apply for one of our garages but priority is given to council tenants. There may be a waiting list in your chosen area. We'll let you know when a garage or garage plot becomes available.

Our garages are suitable for parking a motor vehicle. They are not designed to be watertight or provide secure storage. You should not keep petrol or anything flammable in your garage.

You're not allowed to sublet your garage to anyone else. If you don’t need your garage anymore, give us a week’s notice and leave it empty and swept clean to make sure you get your deposit back.

You can rent a plot or base site and erect your own garage for a cheaper rental cost.

We have garages in

  • Bear Cross
  • Boscombe
  • Charminster
  • East Howe
  • High Howe
  • Kinson
  • Slades Farm
  • Southbourne
  • Springbourne
  • Strouden Park
  • Townsend
  • West Howe
  • Wallisdown
  • Winton

We only have a limited number of garages in some areas which do not become available very often, if you apply for a garage please specify more than one location as this will raise your chance of being offered a garage tenancy.

Paying the rent

You’ll be asked to set up a direct debit to pay rent for your garage or plot. If you do not pay your rent we will write to you. If you don't respond we'll end your tenancy and change the locks on your unit. Anything you leave behind will be disposed of.
