Ofcom invites applications for licences to provide community
radio services within Greater London and other areas within the M25.
The closing date for receipt of completed applications is Tuesday 15
September
.

Ofcom plans to host presentations on the licensing process soon.
Applicants interested in attending should contact
community.radio@ofcom.org.uk or the CMA at licensing@commedia.org.uk

Some points to bear in mind for prospective applicants for licences in
the London area below:

a) Frequencies are very scarce in this area – more so than in any other.

b) However, applications are to be encouraged so that Ofcom has a good
gauge of interest in the area.

c) Applicants should consider applying for an AM licence in view of
frequency scarcity.

d) With possible digital migration issues to consider in the longer
term, those stations who do have either an AM or FM licence will be
well placed for any potential digital switchover of radio.

Any applicants to the London licensing round are advised to keep
up-to-date with the CMA mailing list, check this website and perhaps
follow the Twitter feed for signposting to further information.
