A notice for the proposed demolition of the iconic Doll House roadhouse in Highlands North has been put forward and residents may send in their objections.

The Doll House is one of Johannesburg’s oldest roadhouses, with photographs of the venue dating back as early as 1940. The establishment has been one that many Johannesburgers have fond memories of.

In early July, a notice from the Gauteng Provincial Heritage Resource Authority was sent out announcing the proposed demolition of the property.

The heritage authority also called for residents to send through their objections to the proposed demolition.

Objections can be sent to Private Bag X33, Johannesburg, 2000; by fax to 011 355 2565; or
