A borrowing approval is a formal consent issued by the Welsh Government to Community and Town Councils who wish to borrow money for capital purposes.

Without this consent a Community or Town Council cannot borrow money unless it is borrowed and repaid within the same financial year.

Further information about the application process can be found in the Borrowing Approval guidance notes.

Councils wishing to obtain a borrowing approval must return their completed application form to the following address:
