South Oxfordshire District Council has been given £29,000 to improve air quality.

The council is one of more than 30 bodies in the UK to receive grants from the Government fund to improve air quality.

£29k to stop using Didcot A station presumably, job done. Plant six trees with the remainder? Maintain cycle lane 5 for a year? Fill in a few score pot holes? Build 100 yards of pavement/cycle lane?

Call me a cynic but if progress reports have to be submitted and then audits carried out won't the cost of those be far and above the 29k given thus making the exercise pointless?
