Ofcom looks again at Nottingham TV licence
OFCOM has said it will take another look at plans to award a local TV licence to Notts TV.
The broadcasting regulator has said it will made a decision to award the licence early next week following errors in the application process..
The Nottingham licence will be reconsidered along with the licence to run a TV channel in Sheffield.
An Ofcom spokesman said: "In order to ensure absolute fairness and clarity for all applicants, and in line with Ofcom's high standards, we have decided that the decision on the Nottingham local TV licence will be retaken.
"This follows small errors found in the consideration of the applications."
Craig Chettle, owner and MD of the Confetti Media Group led a consortium, which includes the Nottingham Post. It was previously told it had won the bid. Mr Chettle said: "We look forward to the issues that have been raised being resolved as quickly as possible."
