Parking and garages

Garages and pitch sites

A garage, or lock-up, is a structure leased from the council for the storage of a car, motorbike or other items. A pitch site is a piece of ground leased from the council for parking a car, motorbike, motor-scooter or a small van.

There are two types of pitch site:

  • hard site – which has either a concrete or tarmac surface
  • soft site – has no hard surface and is often bare ground

Applying for a garage or a pitch site

You can rent a garage or pitch site from Stirling Council if you're:

  • aged 16 and over
  • working or living in the council area
  • not owing the council any outstanding debts – if you do, you must have made at least 12 consecutive payments to all your outstanding debts to the council
