Anyone can apply for a licence for a council garage. You do not need to be a tenant of Thanet District Council.


Thanet District Council tenants will be charged £19.23 per week for 1 April 2024 – 31 March 2025.

If you are not a Thanet District Council tenant the fee is £24.04 per week for 1 April 2024- 31 March 2025. (This charge is inclusive of VAT @ 20%.)

Fees are paid in advance. They are reviewed each year.

Fees may be paid by direct debit on a day, and at a frequency that you choose.

Please note that there are 53 weeks from 1 April 2024- 31 March 2025. This will mean that some monthly payments will increase, even though the weekly charge has not been increased from the previous year.
