Renting a garage

Medway Council owns over 600 garages in Gillingham, Rainham and Twydall (specific locations can be found in the application form below).

You do not have to be a council tenant to rent a garage.

From April 2018 all new garage lets will be charged at £9.41 per week (plus VAT for non council tenants).

Apply to rent a garage
