THE cost of installing fencing at Victoria Park, Malvern Link, has increased by £1,565 from its original estimate of £2,500, Malvern town councillors will be told next week.

The overspend is because the height of the planned fencing had to be altered to conform with health and safety reasons.

The council's finance and administration committee meeting on Wednesday, September 26, will hear that the overspend can be contained within the council's overall budget.
