Statement and further consultation published 26 October 2018

This document comprises a statement and a further consultation.

The statement sets out our decisions to:

  • proceed with the proposed amendments to our localness guidelines, which relate to the minimum number of locally-made hours each station should provide, when these programmes should be scheduled, and the provision of local material; and
  • approve the areas we proposed for stations in England, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands in which their programmes are considered to be locally-made.

The further consultation element seeks stakeholders’ views by Friday 30 November 2018 on proposed ‘approved areas’ in Scotland and Wales, which we have revised in light of the responses to the consultation.
