Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council has approximately 6,000 garages to rent around the borough.

The garages are let on a weekly tenancy and there are two rates of garage rent, dependent on the location of the garage.



The majority of garages are let at the standard rate of £10.83 (£13.00 including VAT if applicable) per week. However, a small number of garages, in less popular locations, benefit from a discounted rate of £8.83 (£10.60 including VAT if applicable) per week.

Campus East garages are now let at a premium rate of £15.92 (£19.10 including VAT if applicable) per week.

VAT is charged on all garage letting's, however, in certain circumstances, council tenants and holders of a long lease from Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council may benefit from an exclusion from paying VAT.

In some areas of the borough garages are in great demand, and there may be a waiting list. Holders of a blue badge and those without an existing garage will be given priority over other applicants. To find out the location of our garages, please see our garage locations page.
