Ofcom has invited applications for community radio stations to operate in the east midlands, west midlands and Lincolnshire. And because previously licenced stations have not made it to air in Birmingham, Ofcom say two frequencies may be available for new applicantions in this next stage of awards.
Areas in the East Midlands, West Midlands and Lincolnshire in which Ofcom will not accept applications for community radio licences broadcasting on FM are the City of Nottingham, Nottinghamshire's Gedling District, Telford & Wrekin Unitary Authority and the City of Wolverhampton Metropolitan District.
Full details can be found [link=http://www.ofcom.org.uk/radio/ifi/rbl/commun_radio/tlproc/invites/area6.pdf]here[/link], and the closing date for applications is 5.00pm. on Tuesday 15 January 2008.
