Apply for a garage or end an agreement

Due to a high number of garage applications, we currently have a backlog that we are working hard to process. We are currently not accepting new garage applications until January 2023.

Please check back in the new year. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Apply for a garage

We have garages across the district that are available to rent - view a list of the locations of our garages.

You can apply to rent a garage from us. Priority is given to existing council tenants and anyone with restricted mobility.

You will be placed on a waiting list if there is no available garage at the locations you want. 

When you are offered a garage, you will have to sign a Garage Agreement. This sets out your responsibilities on using the garage. If you break any part of this agreement, we will end your agreement and take back the garage. You will also be charged for forced entry, clearance and a lock change. 

We will not rent a garage to tenants or leaseholders who owe us rent or service charges.

Ending your garage tenancy

If you wish to end your garage tenancy, you need to give us two weeks’ notice.

You must return your garage clean and clear of all items. If you do not, you will be charged for any clearance costs. 

You must return the keys to us promptly.  Keys must be handed into the offices at:

Sudbury Library, Market Hill, Sudbury CO10 2EN or Stowmarket CAP, 54 Ipswich Street, Stowmarket IP14 1AD
