Witham: Structural damage to building delays Prezzo opening
3:00pm Tuesday 20th August 2013 in News
A renowned Italian food chain has been forced to delay the opening of a new restaurant in Witham.
Prezzo was given permission by Braintree Council to open on the site of a former discount store in Newland Street way back in March and had hoped the restaurant would already be open.
However, closer inspection of the building revealed substantial damage to the original roof and wall timbers, which must now be fixed.
Prezzo chief executive Jonathan Kaye said: “We are disappointed that our new restaurant in Witham has been delayed, however, this is out of our control.
“We will undertake the necessary work and our aim is to have the restaurant open late September, early October.”
