Please be advised that another application for a liquor licence in the Melville area was lodged with the Gauteng Liquor Board.

This is for a restaurant (possibly a pub) on the corner of 4th Avenue and Main Road, Brazenhead Melville – Application GLB 7000011421

The location of the proposed venue is in the already noisy Main Road.  Those of you who live in that area will recall the noise nuisance that emanated from the other liquor licenced businesses in the area.  Affected residents who are concerned about these issues, are encouraged to object.


The MRA will, as is the practice lodge an objection in an endeavour to liaise with the applicant who to date did not reach out to the MRA to engage.


As indicated over the past weeks the liquor board opted to ignore objections lodged in the recent past and we urge residents who are concerned to object and state that they request a hearing. The deadline for objections to be lodged is 22 March 2019 – see the process below.  We regret the short notice as it was a challenge to obtain a complete and good copy of the application.


Please review the application and if you feel it deems an objection you can do so in your personal capacity or in support of the MRA objection


Those wishing to object must do so in writing, addressed to the Gauteng Liquor Board and not the Melville Residents’ Association


  • Ensure that you supply your details correctly and
  • that the objection is signed and dated

The Liquor Board requires a single copy of the objection (which must be hand delivered to their offices at Matloto House, 2nd Floor 124 Main Street, Johannesburg) however, to confirm receipt it would be prudent to take a second copy with to the Liquor Board and have both copies stamped as received. The second copy is your confirmation that the Liquor Board has received your objection.

The Melville Residents’ Association Committee will also assist the community if 2 copies of the objection are drop off with Melville Postnet (Corner of 1st Avenue & Main road) on or before 22 March 2019 @ 09:00, whereby an MRA representative will ensure delivery to the Liquor Board.

If you plan to drop off your objection at Postnet, please notify the MRA via

Please note: In additional to the copies to the Liquor board, a copy of the objection must be forwarded to the agent dealing with the application, delivered via email by the objector and not the MRA:
