|It is the aim of the MRA to inform all residents & businesses of any liquor applications for premises made for Melville and immediate suburbs via our website, social media and also email.
In terms of the MRA's practice, all liquor licence applications will be opposed in order to engage with the applicant to discuss their concerns regarding the application in terms of:
- Type of Licence;
- Operating Hours;
- Transferability of licence;
- The Impact on Melville Residents
If an agreement is reached, the MRA will produce a document stating what has been agreed, signed by applicants and will form part of application for a liquor licence.
The intention is to have a degree of protection for the residents of Melville and accountability from the Liquor Applicant, rather than our objections being overturned at the expense of Melville.
This, in no way affects a Melville residents rights to submit their own applications and be heard at the Liquor Board hearings.
