The cost to rent a garage is:

  • Council tenants: £19.22 per week or £21.71 per week (depending on area)
  • Others: £23.06 per week or £26.05 per week depending on area (£19.22 or £21.71 + VAT)

We have a reduced rental charge for disabled people, and additional discounts are available if you are:

  • buying or leasing a car, or have bought a car through the Motability Scheme or privately
  • receive the higher rate of Disability Living Allowance with a mobility component

This does not apply automatically to all Blue Badge holders. You must prove you qualify for the reduced rent and provide a copy of your car documents.
