Insurers have confirmed that they do not believe council has acted negligently, but proposed a ‘without admission of liability’ offer in settlement of the claim for damage as it would not be financially viable to defend if litigated. Council agreed to accept the insurers proposal ‘ to settle this matter on best possible terms due to lack of evidence and potentially seek recovery from either one or both of the contractors as it would not be financially viable to defend this matter if litigated’.
