The refurbishment of a sports pavilion on Kingsway playing fields, North Lynn, will go ahead despite it exceeding its budget..
West Norfolk Council has set aside a further £25,000 to fund the upgrade. The council had already committed £150,000 to the project and £148,500 has been secured from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities Fund.
A West Norfolk Council spokesman said: “The tender for the scheme came in higher than the original estimate. The specification has been revised to keep down costs as far as possible. Works are due to start as soon as possible with the aim of completing before the start of the next football season in August.”
