Last updated: 12 July 2024

This page provides a copy of any community digital sound programme (C-DSP) application which has been submitted to Ofcom.

This licence is awarded against specific statutory criteria, which must be demonstrated in the application. Caution is required in using past applications as templates for future applications. Applications should be carefully tailored to your individual proposals and, in the case of many of the below applications, information in the form has been insufficient and Ofcom has needed to ask the applicant a series of clarification questions to ensure it has sufficient information to licence a service.
