It is notable that Bangor, Cambridge, Middlesbrough, Mold, Scarborough, York and Swansea are not on the list.The closing date for applications for Bangor, Cambridge, Middlesbrough, Mold, Scarborough, Swansea and York is 11 September 2013. It is possible that there may be channels in phase two locations on air by the end of 2014.
In addition, Ofcom is proposing to merge the Maidstone and Tunbridge licences into one licence, and also to merge Hereford and Gloucester into a single licence area.
Have Ofcom published the transmitterpower details for each of the phase 1 sites and/or each of the phase 2 sites? Have any of the phase 1 franchisees opted to use better mast positions than was assumed in the forecast maps? If yes, how will these changes affect the areas where reception is possible?
Actually, they are advertising for the locations you say are not on the list. The closing date for applications being 11 September 2013. The remaining 23 locations in the list to be advertised, in batches, over the next year.
I thought Shrewsbury and Telford were proposed to run local TVchannels.
Were the companies with applications for licences rejected by Ofcom or something?
Could they re-apply or anyone else apply for a licence in the future?
And how soon could the winning licence get on the air? (SJ294530)
