  • Start: 09 December 2020
  • Status: Closed
  • End: 13 January 2021

Bauer Radio has asked Ofcom to the approve the addition of the Plymouth licence, which it recently acquired, to its bespoke approved area of the South West England (Bauer). The Plymouth licence, which broadcasts as ‘Greatest Hits Radio’, is currently required to produce its required hours of local programming from within its licence area.

If the request is approved, the revised South West England (Bauer) would include the following 12 licences:  Bath; Bridgwater & West Somerset; Bristol (two licences); Cheltenham; Cornwall; Plymouth; Swindon; Torbay; Warminster; Weston-super-Mare; and; Yeovil.

We are seeking views on Bauer Radio’s proposal, before we decide whether or not to approve the revised approved area. Our preliminary view is that we are minded to approve the request, for the policy reasons set out in Section 3 of this document.
