Mobile Food Vehicles

The City of Bayswater has recognised that there is an emerging national and international trend for ‘pop up’ mobile food vehicles as a means of activating under-utilised streets and public places to create social community hubs.

To address this need the City has developed a Mobile Food Vehicles Policy which includes potential locations for mobile food vehicles on public land (parks, reserves, streets or roads), waste management, fixtures, noise and advertising.

The City of Bayswater has approved the following 13 locations within the City for mobile food vehicles to operate at: 

  • AP Hinds Reserve, Bayswater;
  • Bardon Park, Maylands;
  • Beaufort Park, Bedford; 
  • Berringa Park, Maylands;
  • Bert Wright Park, Bayswater;Operators can apply for the following permits:
  • Broun Park, Embleton; 
  • Clarkson Reserve, Maylands;
  • Claughton Reserve, Maylands;
  • Crimea Park, Morley; 
  • Riverside Gardens, Bayswater; 
  • Robert Thompson Park, Noranda; 
  • Shearn Memorial Park, Maylands; and 
  • Wymond Park, Bayswater.

Alternative locations could also be considered if they meet the objectives of the Mobile Food Vehicles Policy.

Operators can apply for the following permits

  • Crimea Park Evening (Friday, Saturday and Sunday 4pm onwards)
  • Crimea Park (mornings between 6am and 1pm)
  • 12 Other Approved locations
