A garage is a pre cast concrete or brick built garage which you rent from us. We are responsible for repairs to the garage.

A garage or garage plot can only be used to store a motor vehicle, it cannot be used to store goods for running a business.

Garage and garage site allocation policy

The current policy is that garages or plots are allocated in priority order and then in date order, when allocating garages or garage plots we look at applications in the highest priority category first and only move on to lower priorities if there is no suitable applicants left. Priority One - Any current garage or garage site tenant who we wish to move to another plot for management reasons e.g. Demolition. Priority Two - Current council house tenants in date order of application. Priority Three – anyone who is not a Barnsley Council tenant, in date order of application Priority Four - Current garage or site tenants wanting additional garage/site. Transfers from one garage to another - Any applicant who has a garage or garage site tenancy and who wishes to transfer to another site must make a new application and will be considered in line with the above priority scheme.
