BAYSWATER city council has approved a 12-month trial of pop-up food vans in the city.
Council came under fire in June when it voted to delay approval of a pop-up food van on Railway Parade for three months so staff could prepare a formal policy first.
Pop-up food van owners will be charged $500 (3-month permit), $850 (6-month permit) and $1500 (12-month permit).
Council staff have earmarked potential locations for the vans, including Riverside Gardens, Bardon Park and Crimea Park.
