Melville Residents' Association: Liquor Portfolio

Dear Community,

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 on the corner of 3rd Avenue and Main Road (premises previously occupied by Nando's), Braai Point.

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

The MRA will, as is the practice, reach out to the applicant to try to obtain more information about his intended enterprise which he states is "... to bring life to this area ..." and will lodge an objection in a further endeavour to liaise with the applicant. 

The deadline for objections to be lodged is 26 April 2019 – see the process below.

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 assist the community if 2 copies of the objection are drop off with Melville Postnet (Corner of 1st Avenue & Main road) on or before 25 April 2019 @ 12noon, 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 addition to the copies to the Liquor board, a copy of the objection must be forwarded to the applicant, delivered via email by the objector:
