Public Notice No 2053 Mpumalanga Gambling Board
Consultation on proposed change of casino licensing policy
The Mpumalanga Province has been allocated four casino licences. In 1996, the Mpumalanga Gambling Board (''the Board") adopted a policy of demarcating the Mpumalanga Province (''the province") into four (4) zones, with one casino licence allocated to each zone, for the purpose of the licensing of casinos. Three (3) casinos were subsequently licensed in line with this policy in Zones 1, 2, and 3. As a result of the re-demarcation of provincial borders, the re-zoning of the province into three (3) district municipalities and different economic developmental nodes in the province, the Board resolved to review the abovementioned policy as follows: "Casino licence applications at any location within the Mpumalanga Province will be considered". During 2011, the Board invited representations from all interested parties and members of the public on the aforementioned proposed policy amendment. Written representations have been received and as a result the Board hereby invites parties that made representations and interested parties, as well as the public, to consultation meetings on the proposed casino licensing policy amendment in the three municipal districts in the Province at the following venues:
On 18 July 2012 at 10hOO at Emnotweni Arena, Government Boulevard, Nelspruit, Ehlanzeni District;
Kindly note that interested parties are also welcome to submit written representations to the Board during the above public consultations.
