£400,000? That's no match for the £2m horse that is proposed for Swanscombe in Kent.

It's good to know that when money is tight, funds can be found for these things that really matter.

It is part of a project to boost the Basildon Enterprise Parks along the A127 which is a key employment area in the region, the council said.
The £400,000 project is being funded from a grant from the Thames Gateway programme.

Sounds to me like the whole project is £400K, not the sign.

Yes £400K (from a £700K grant from Thames Gateway) for "the project" of promoting the business park.
