Land to rent or buy for garages, gardens and grazing

​​​​​​​​To find out if an area of land is owned by the council or if you're looking for a garage, garden or grazing plot.

Apply to purchase, lease or rent council land

In some circumstances, you may be able to purchase land from us.

This is a discretionary process. We do not have a legal obligation to sell land in this way. Council officers will use their professional judgement and experience to decide whether to sell or lease a plot of land.

Once an agreement has been signed to rent a garden or garage plot, you must apply for planning consent for the change of use of land.
