Applying for car parking spaces and garages

Housing customer services manage car parking spaces and garages on council land across Brighton &Hove. Many of our garages and spaces are available to apply for. Anybody can apply, although priority will be given first to blue badge holders, then council tenants and resident council leaseholders and then private applicants.

About garages and car parking spaces

  • Council-owned garages and car parking spaces are for domestic parking use only
  • After your initial 4-week payment, we will require direct debits or standing orders as a method of payment for all new garage or car parking spaces
  • Storage of personal items or the use for commercial businesses is not permitted
  • Applicants with council housing arrears (such as rent) will be placed on the waiting list however allocation of a space or garage will not be made until arrears have been cleared
  • The licence of your car parking space or garage will be at risk if you do not keep up the payments on your account
  • You need to inform Housing Customer Services if your contact details change

Renting a second garage or car park space

We can accept applications to rent a temporary second car park space or garage for the same household at selected sites. Please be aware that this is subject to availability and all additional car park spaces and garages will be offered on a first come, first served basis, in line with our priority system.

The council reserves the right to terminate the second rented car park space or garage if demand increases at that site.

Multi-use storage spaces (for mobility scooters, electric wheelchairs and bicycles)

We have multi-use storage spaces (MSS) available in specifically designed storage areas. The spaces can be used for the secure parking and regular charging of mobility scooters and electronic wheelchairs at the four sites. We also allow bicycles (push bikes or electric) to be stored at the Robert Lodge MSS. We do not allow petrol or diesel powered transport to be stored in these storage areas. We also do not allow for the storage of personal or commercial items in multi-use storage spaces.

Terminating your car parking space, garage or multi-use storage space licence

To terminate your car parking space, multi-use storage space or garage, you need to give us at least seven days notice, with the end date being a Monday, by completing the termination form (Microsoft Word 61KB). This means your last day will be the Monday following the seven day notice period.

Please print and sign the form, then scan and email it to housing.customerservices@brighton-hove.gov.uk. Alternatively you can complete a termination form at a housing office or post a completed form to:

Housing Customer Services
Housing Centre
Unit 1, Fairway Trading Estate

We cannot end your car parking, multi-use storage space or garage licence until we have received this signed notice from you.

Please note that if you terminate your residential council tenancy, your car parking space, multi-use storage space or garage licence will not automatically end. You will need to terminate your licence separately using the form above.
