Apply for garage lettings

We manage a number of garages and parking bays in the Borough.

Garage hire is available for personal use to everyone living or working in the Borough. Commercial activity is not permitted.

Garages are intended for the storage of a motor vehicle. They are not sufficiently weather tight or secure for the storage of any other goods.

Anything you store inside the garage (including motor vehicles) is at your own risk and should be covered by your insurance.

Basildon Council will not accept liability for any stolen or damaged items kept in a garage.

Garage rents or charges for parking bays made by the Council are not subject to VAT where all the following conditions are met;

  • The garage or parking bay is  within reasonable proximity (¼ mile) to the dwelling;
  • The garage or parking bay and the dwelling are both let by the same landlord to the same tenant.

If you are a council tenant or leaseholder and want to rent more than two garages or parking bays, VAT will become applicable from the third garage or parking bay onwards.
