Garages

Garage rental application or termination

Garage tenancy

We have garages across the district that are available to rent - please view the next page to see Garages in Babergh

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. Please refer to garages terms, conditions and prices. 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.

Terminate a garage tenancy

If you wish to end your garage tenancy, you need to give us two weeks written 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:

Stowmarket Customer Access Point, 54 Ipswich Street, Stowmarket IP14 1AD or any of our offices

Keys can be posted, when posting the keys, please ensure you secure the keys to a piece of card with the garage address stated, to ensure their safe arrival.
