Complications with planning permission has made a temporary mast impossible. Bare in mind this date is provisional as weather conditions will be a huge factor...

This will also affect those served by relay transmitters of The Wrekin at Halesowen, Clun, Bucknell, Coalbrookdale and Haden Hill...

Arqiva confirm a small low power analogue service will be in-affect but that will still leave 13,000 homes un-served...Corrections post 2nd September 1232
