ACMA makes a Lofty decision for the Adelaide Hills

Friday 18 September, 2020

The ACMA has allocated a long-term community radio broadcasting licence in the Mt Barker area of the Adelaide Hills to Lofty Community Media Incorporated (Lofty).
The licence will be used to provide a community radio service which will broadcast on the frequency of 88.9MHz.
Applications for the licence were invited in October 2019, and in making its decision to allocate the license, the ACMA considered the extent to which the proposed services would meet the needs of the local community, and the capacity of the applicants to provide the proposed service.
The ACMA decided that Lofty presented the strongest case that it has the capacity to provide its proposed community broadcasting service and that Lofty’s application demonstrated a strong focus on encouraging community participation in the operations and programming of the station.

The decision to grant the full time licence to Lofty has "devastated" the other applicant, Hill Radio, which will no longer be able to share time on the broadcast frequency (see related report)
