Minutes:

The Executive Member considered a report which provided an update on the outcome of the recent Air Quality Support Grant (AQSG) applications made to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). Three AQSG bids were made in relation to the council’s ongoing Local Air Quality Management (LAQM) work. The report provided an overview of the planned expenditure of the AQSQ to be accepted from DEFRA and a general update on local air quality management in York.

 

Officers outlined the report and advised the Executive Member that York had been awarded the fifth highest allocation of grants in the country, despite the amounts awarded being well below the amounts bid for.
