North Kesteven District Council Garages

How do I rent a garage?

We have garages available to rent in a number of areas. In some places there are garages that are available, for other areas you may have to join a waiting list until a vacancy becomes available.

To go on our garage waiting list you must live or work within the district and be up to date with all payments due to the council. You do not have to be a Council tenant.

 

When allocating garages we use a date order system. Priority is given to those who are a council tenant of one of our dwellings, however many garages are rented to other individuals where there are vacancies.

We will not offer you a garage to rent unless you are up to date with all housing related payments due to the council. Additionally, we will terminate your garage license if you do not keep up to date with all housing related payments due to the council.

Applying to rent a garage

To apply for a garage you need to complete a  Garage Application Form.
