Ofcom invites licence applications for community radio licences in the East of England, Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes.
Community radio services are provided on a not-for-profit basis, focusing on the delivery of specific social benefits to a particular geographical community or a community of interest.
Ofcom can award five-year community licences on either the FM (VHF) waveband or the AM (medium wave) band for the East of England, Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes. However, there are parts of this region where suitable FM frequencies are not available and licences cannot be offered.
Applications for community licences for these areas must be received by 5pm on 16 December 2014.
