Ofcom explains recent awards

Ofcom recently awarded two community radio licences, to Stroud FM in Gloucestershire and 10Radio in Somerset. As with all new awards, Ofcom explains the reasoning behind each award shortly after the event.

For Stroud FM, Ofcom comments:

[i]This applicant brings a considerable amount of external broadcasting experience to its proposals for a service which would have a clearly defined local focus, supported by a motivated management team (1a). This group has put forward plans to gradually increase its speech-based content over time and deliver a local radio service with a clearly defined and appropriate community ethos (1b and 1e) which would broaden choice locally (1c). It has built relationships with a range of local organisations which support the application (1d).[/i]

And for 10Radio, Wiveliscombe, Somerset:

[i]A coherent and realistic set of proposals from a group that has honed its plans through the operation of two temporary restricted service licences (RSLs). The board of ten includes people with experience of training, community development, broadcasting and local business (1a). A training partnership has been forged with the local school, in return for funding (1a and 1e). Live output is proposed on Fridays and weekends only at first, and will include coverage of the local arts scene including local music (1b and 1c).[/i]
