* Each of these licences currently qualifies for renewal under the Broadcasting Act 1990 and thus may not be pre-advertised.
The dates in the above table (apart from the expiry date of the existing licence) are subject to revision, as circumstances dictate.
In accordance with Ofcom's published policy (PDF, 252.0 KB), any licence whose existing holder does not commit to maintaining its current Format will be fully re-advertised in accordance with the above timetable.
1. Licence 'pre-advertisement' involves Ofcom inviting declarations of intent to apply for the licence. A declaration of intent must be accompanied by a cash deposit. If no declaration of intent is received from anyone except the existing licensee, Ofcom can proceed with a 'fast track' re-licensing of the existing licensee. If more than one declaration of intent is received, the licence will be re-advertised.
2. There will be at least a three month period between advertisement date and closing date for applications.
