Public Works Loan Board
Lending to Parish, Town and Community Councils
PWLB lends to town and parish councils (in England) and town and community councils (in Wales). Applicants must obtain a borrowing approval from the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), for which they should approach their County Association of Local Councils or, in the case of Welsh councils, the Welsh Government.
PWLB will require a completed application form LC1 (297KB).
All documents should be sent to the Board one week before the loan is required.
A guidance note LC2 (344KB) is available regarding
applying and the early repayment of loans.
Indicative repayment costs on fixed rate loans are available here.
