We rent out garages and parking spaces across the city.
The approximate internal dimensions of our garages are 4.9m long by 2.33m wide. The door is 2.14m wide. These measurements were taken from garages in Newtown.
For larger vehicles, parking spaces are often a better option. They can be secured with a drop-down bollard and padlock.
You can choose up to three preferred locations when you apply. Some areas are more popular than others, so you might be added to a waiting list.

Terms and conditions
If we offer you a garage or parking space, you must sign a tenancy agreement. You must also pay four weeks rent in advance plus a £50 deposit, and set up a direct debit for future rent payments.
You are responsible for your garage or parking space – this includes replacing any lost keys and reporting any damage that needs to be repaired. We will charge you for the repair cost of any damage caused as a result of misuse of the garage or parking space.
You can use your garage to store a vehicle, or to store bicycles and personal household or garden items. We do not accept liability for items damaged while stored in a garage.
Ending your tenancy agreement
To end your tenancy, you must return all keys to our City Homes office on Arbury Road.
Your garage or parking space must be clean and clear of all items – we will inspect it before refunding your deposit. If any items are left in the garage you will be charged for their removal and disposal.
If you break any part of the agreement, such as by failing to pay your rent, we’ll serve you with a ‘notice to quit’. This allows us to take possession of the garage or parking space. You will be charged the cost of gaining entry, clearance and replacing the lock.
Other grounds for terminating your agreement include complaints of noise or nuisance caused by you or your visitors at your garage or parking space, or using it for business purposes.
