Renting a garage or parking space
Portsmouth City Council lets out more than 2,350 garages and 2,300 parking spaces across and outside of the city at very reasonable rates. Some areas have waiting lists. Charges vary according to location – price ranges are as follows:
Parking Spaces* – from £2.02 to £16.68 per week (including VAT for non-Portsmouth City Council tenants or leaseholders)
Garages – from £11.00 to £24.66 per week (including VAT for non-Portsmouth City Council tenants or leaseholders)
Caged parking – from £5.10 to £16.68 per week (including VAT for non-Portsmouth City Council tenants or leaseholders)
* There are two types of parking space – ground level and underground. Caged parking sites are located in Buckland only.
Anyone can apply to rent a parking space or garage, but the government adds VAT for anyone who is not a Portsmouth City Council tenant or leaseholder.
