Rent a council garage or parking space

You are here

Various garages

Ipswich Borough Council has garages and secure parking spaces to rent in various areas across town.


  • Only current Ipswich Borough Council tenants, leaseholders and commercial tenants may apply for garages or parking spaces.
  • Applicants must not have any current or former arrears in respect of any residential premises or garages.
  • The garage must only be used for the storage of a private vehicle only.


Rent is typically £10.41 per week for a garage and £2.22 per week for a parking space (some sites may vary). If a water supply is available on site, you will be charged an extra £1.32 per week

We accept Direct Debit as the only way for new garage tenants to pay their rent.

If you receive the mobility component of Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independence Payment you are entitled to a £1 per week discount off the cost of renting a council garage. We will need to see evidence of this.

Payments can be made weekly, fortnightly or monthly, but must be in advance. We offer a number of ways in which to pay the rent.


Please note: Some of the garage sites listed below are currently being evaluated in their suitability for lettings purposes, therefore some areas may have no availability. Parking spaces have lockable posts.
