Five new community radio stations in the East

Ofcom has awarded five new community radio licences today in the East and East Anglia, including two in Peterborough and two in Norfolk.

Licences have been awarded to Peterborough FM and Salaam Radio in Peterborough, Brecks FM and Park Radio in Norfolk and also Radio Castle in Suffolk.

Ofcom has also rejected one application – from Radio Peterborough.

Here are details of all the new stations, which have two years to launch their five year licences.

Peterborough FM will provide a community radio service for the general population of Peterborough.

Salaam Radio will provide a community radio service that will be predominantly for the Muslim population of Peterborough.

Brecks FM will provide a locally-focused service for the town of Watton in Norfolk, and surrounding villages.

Park Radio will serve the rural communities of Diss, Harleston and Eye and surrounding villages located near the border between Norfolk and Suffolk.
