Zimzala seeks compensation

217 Signatures Goal: 10,000

SUTHERLAND Shire Council has rejected Zimzala restaurant’s request for
$44,000 as partial compensation for lost trade during the protracted
$3 million upgrade of The Esplanade.

Ray Nelson, whose family owns and operates Zimzala, said the business was severely affected by construction work, which was meant to be completed by October 9 2012.

Instead, it continued until just before Christmas 2012 and is due to resume
in May this year, when the pavement will be replaced.

The disruption had so far cost $200,000 in lost business and we could be
bankrupted by the next stage of work, particularly if it also ran over schedule. We can’t afford to take another hit like that!

The project will end up taking at least four to five months longer than we
were originally advised.

Sutherland Shire Council has refused any compensation, which leaves us
with no option but to take legal action to recover the full loss, nearly $200,000, for the period from June to December.

We ask for our loyal customers to register on this partition to help our
pending case! Sincerely Ray Nelson (owner Zimzala Cronulla)

    It's tragic when outside work impacts on your livelihood and then those responsible just want to bury there head at the problem if the Sutherland shire council had offered something that would have been good now take them for the full cost
