Stanwell Park kiosk upgrade

WOLLONGONG City Council has begun investigations into replacing the ageing range hood, ducting and venting system in the Stanwell Park Kiosk.
An examination in October found that the venting system was installed incorrectly by a previous tenant and not compliant with Australian Standards.
Council’s Manager Property and Recreation, Peter Coyte said: “It was a fault that was only visible from within the roof cavity. As a result of its inaccessibility, the fault wasn’t visible at regular property inspections. “Unfortunately there was a high fire risk due to the incorrect venting of the deep fryer and cookers. Council has disconnected power supply to the deep fry cookers and the range hood.

“We understand this is having an impact on the business and we’re working with the kiosk operator to come up with a solution to get them back up and running.”

The kiosk operator entered into a new three-year lease for the kiosk last February.

In the interim Council is seeking quotes to have the venting system/ducting replaced.
