Housing Revenue Account (HRA) statistics: Scottish local authority housing income and expenditure 2018-2019 (actuals) and 2019-2020 (estimates)
This bulletin presents statistics on Local Authority housing income and expenditure in Scotland from their Housing Revenue Accounts (HRAs)statistical returns.
Capital investment (charts 13 & 14)
37. These capital investment figures are taken from the Scottish Government Capital Provisional Outturn and Budget Estimate (CPOBE) Return 2018-19. The figures discussed here are provisional outturn figures and are therefore subject to revision. Final, audited capital expenditure figures will be published next year.
38. Local Authorities' total, provisional, capital investment on housing, financed from all sources (including new borrowing, useable receipts and financed from the CFCR from the HRA surplus) in 2018-19 is £738m. This includes £389m on improvements to existing council houses, £286m on new council houses and £63m on all other capital expenditure . This expenditure is in addition to the day-to-day maintenance referred to above. The councils with the greatest capital investment in new council dwellings were the City of Edinburgh (around £47m) followed by South Lanarkshire (around £27m).
