Food and cof­fee vans may get own space

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - By JON BAS­SETT

COF­FEE and food vans may get ded­i­cated spots to trade in a pro­posed pol­icy con­trol­ling the busi­nesses cur­rently at the Curtin Av­enue carpark at Mos­man Park Beach and other sites.

An of­fi­cer re­port stated the cur­rent ar­range­ments con­flicted with park­ing rules in the area and were “messy and in need of stream­lin­ing.”

At a meet­ing held last month, Coun­cil­lor Zenda John­son wanted a po­ten­tial site for the vans on Bay View Ter­race, over­look­ing the Swan River, to be re­moved from the draft pol­icy.

Cr John­son asked if the pol­icy dealt with rub­bish re­ported to have been left in pub­lic bins by food vans near Mos­man Park IGA on Welling­ton Street.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Mark Goodlet said the draft pol­icy was in­tended for pub­lic com­ment, and it would be the coun­cil’s choice whether to in­clude or re­move trad­ing sites, like those at Tom Per­rot Re­serve.

There had been no complaints at the Mos­man Park Beach car park, which is used by a cof­fee van early on week­days, an ice cream van on week­ends and a food bus which has va­cated the area since sum­mer.

Coun­cil­lors de­cided to pro­pose two “soft” stands and a ded­i­cated car bay for the cof­fee van at the car park and for the draft pol­icy to be ad­ver­tised for 28 days be­fore it is con­sid­ered at Au­gust’s meet­ing.
