Date: (06/06/2011)

The fife Tay Local TV Working Group contributed to the submission made by the Scottish Local TV Federation in March 2011.

"Local TV in the UK came one step closer to being a reality today as the Culture Secretary said that a series of individual stations could be more feasible and faster to deliver. The announcement came as DCMS today published a summary of the 140 responses to its consultation on local TV. One of the key issues in the consultation was the model for delivery - a national ‘spine’ or individually licensed stations. In parallel with the consultation, ministers have also been considering issues on technical capacity, implementation, costs and the overall timetable."
