Kings Hill Parish Council Loans

An Introduction to Parish Council Borrowing


  • A parish council may borrow funds but will normally require the formal written approval of the Secretary of State.
  • Councils wishing to borrow will have to get in touch with the County Association, whether a member or not, to discuss the proposal and to obtain the Application Form for the Approval.
  • Borrowing must be for a specific, generally capital expenditure, purpose detailed on the Application and in a Report to Council.
  • Approval is required and no mortgage or charge on property is allowed.
  • The Council will be required to demonstrate to the Secretary of State that the repayments are affordable and that the Project costs being supported exceed £5 per elector.
  • If borrowing is being considered, the Clerk and Chairman should contact the County Association office as early as possible. Any formal decision to apply for and to exercise a borrowing approval has to be made by the Full Council meeting and not by a Committee.
  • Usually loans are taken from the Public Works Loan Board (PWLB) at rates of interest that are very competitive. A parish council is a first class borrower based on the security of the council tax revenues. PWLB also understand the statutory position of the Council.
