Cootamundra community licence delayed

Friday 21 February, 2003

The ABA has decided not to allocate a community radio broadcasting licence in Cootamundra, News South Wales at this time.

The ABA sought applications for the licence in August 2002, and the sole applicant was Cootamundra Workskills Incorporated which proposed to serve the general community of the Cootamundra licence area.

ABA Chairman David Flint explains: "After giving careful consideration to the criteria laid down in the legislation and the information provided by the applicant, the ABA has decided in this case not to allocate the licence. The ABA has decided that in 12 months it will review the situation, with a view to readvertising the availability of the licence. During the intervening period the ABA encourages the applicant to operate a temporary service to develop its capacity."

Until such time as the ABA reviews the temporary licence service and reconsiders a permanent allocation, the channel set aside for this licence (106.7 MHz) will be made available for temporary community broadcasting.
