Garages to let

Garage allocations during lockdown 3

Due to lockdown restrictions, the Tenancy Support Team will not be able to carry out garage inspections therefore garages will not be let during this period. Due to a high number of applicants currently on the garage waiting list and insufficient lettable garages, the garage application process and waiting list is currently suspended.

Any further updates will be posted on this page.

If you are ending your garage tenancy and need to return garage keys please do this by registered post to Tenancy Services, The Woolwich Centre, 35 Wellington Street, London, SE18 6HQ or contact us by email at Central-Neighbourhood-Office@royalgreenwich.gov.uk  When returning keys by registered please ensure you include your full name, contact details, full home address, and the address of the garage.


There are a limited number of council-owned garages and parking spaces available to rent in Royal Greenwich. You can apply to be put on a waiting list to sign up for the next available garage or parking space.

The waiting list is prioritised based on criteria such as whether you are a council tenant or leaseholder and how close the garage is to your home.

Garages are very popular and depending on the priority banding you are put in, we might not be able to offer you a garage.

Please note: Due to increased pressures on housing managed car parks and estate roads, garages are strictly let for the purpose of storing a vehicle (primarily a car). Therefore applications made for any other purpose including storage, will be refused.

What does it cost?

Rent must be paid by monthly Direct Debit.

Prices are graded A to C according to the standard of the garage and its location.

Grade A £5.86 £25.39
Grade B £8.35 £36.18

Rents are higher for people who aren't council tenants or leaseholders, as the total amount will include VAT.

A 20 per cent discount is available for households with a disabled person living there subject to meeting the eligibility criteria.

Prices may increase in the future.

How to apply

Garages are very popular and we currently have long waiting lists for all areas of the borough. Due to a high number of applicants currently on the garage waiting list and insufficient lettable garages, the garage application process and waiting list is currently suspended.

If have previously applied you will remain on the waiting list and The Tenancy Support Team will contact you when a garage becomes available. You don't need to call to check on your application.

Garage sizes

Our standard garage size is 7ft wide and 6ft 4 high, though some of our garages are smaller. We don't have any garages larger than this.

If you are offered a garage, we'll meet you on site to view the garage so that you can check if it is large enough for your vehicle before you sign a rental agreement with us.
