24 want a north west licence

Ofcom has received 24 applications for community radio stations in the north west of England and north Wales. The bids range from a station for the gay community in Manchester city centre (Gaydio) to a Christian station in Prestatyn (The Light FM).

Applications have been submitted to Ofcom to provide new low-powered five year licences in Rhyl, Llandudno, Wrexham, Bolton, Preston, Burnley, Macclesfield, Congleton, Wirral, Manchester, Altrincham, Crewe, Knowsley, St Helens, Warrington, Rossendale, Lytham St Annes, Southport, Tatton and Trafford.

Some of the stations will over-lap other recently launched community radio services, whilst others propose a much needed station to cover their area.

Ofcom will decide in early 2008 which of the 24 applicants are successful.
