New community licences awarded

Ofcom has today awarded four new community radio licences, the recipients are CAM, Wayland Radio, Carolina FM and Future Radio, the latter has now been granted a licence to broadcast across Norwich.

Future Radio (Norwich) sees its original licence servicing the West Norwich area now broadened to allow it to broadcast across all the Norwich area. CAM (Cambridge) will provide a service aimed at the city’s academic core, Wayland Radio (Swaffham and Watton, Norfolk) will help to provide direct access to broadcasting facilities for those living and working in this rural area, while Carolina FM (East Braintree, Essex) will focus on local entertainment and leisure events as well as training in radio production.

Community radio services typically cover a small geographical area and are provided on a not-for-profit basis focusing on the delivery of specific social benefits to enrich a particular geographical community or a community of interest. The licences are awarded for a five-year period.
