- In 2014-15, total capital forecast expenditure as reported by Welsh local authorities, including police, fire and national park authorities is £1,211 million. This represents a year on year increase of £109 million or 10%, mainly due to a forecast increase in unsupported borrowing and a reduced forecast in the previous year.
- Unitary authorities report an increase of £130 million or 13% in their capital forecast expenditure to £1,144 million. Police report a decrease of 29% in their capital forecast expenditure to £45 million, while fire authorities show a decrease of £1 million to £21 million over the previous year.
- Education services account for 26% of the total capital forecast expenditure, housing services 22% and planning and economic development 14%.
- 56% of the funding for this expenditure is from authorities own internal financing. The remaining 44% is in the form of external support, mainly from the Welsh Government in grants and supported borrowing.
- The unsupported borrowing element of internal financing is forecast to increase by £83 million or 29% to £371 million over the previous year.
