New tastes to be wheeled out to town
A new mobile food van will soon spice things up in Waroona following approval by the Waroona Shire Council.
The council voted to approve the mobile food vending business on Lot 224 South Western Highway
Na’Dees Cuisine owners Nadia and Derek Burgess will soon be serving up curries, salads, pickles, breads and soft drinks at the site.
The owners were were given approval for six months in order to assess the impact the proposal may have on traffic and parking provisions in the area.
The van will operate from Monday to Friday between 10am and 4pm.
A mobile seafood van has operated from the same location, in a service-commercial zoned area, since planning was first approved in April 2014.
This business is approved to operate from 8am to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday and from 6am to 6pm on Thursdays and public holidays.
A report to council said it was believed there would be minimum overlap between the two companies.
Executive manager for planning and building Leonard Long recommended the council ensure that adequate on-site parking was available for the proposed use.
Waroona shire president Mike Walmsley said it was always good to see new ideas.
“We have some delightful food vendors in the area already and I hope this new venture can complement the great things already on offer in the area,” he said.
Mr and Mrs Burgess already have approval for Na’Dees Cuisine to operate in the Shire of Murray in industrial areas and at the Ravenswood Boat Ramp carpark.
Main Roads WA expressed concern that the proposed food van will generate increased traffic which could result in parking on the highway road verge which would create potential for traffic conflicts and detract from the function and safety of the highway.
