New Community Licence for Latrobe Valley

The ABA has invited applications for a new community radio broadcasting licence for Victoria’s Latrobe Valley.

After completion of the Warragul radio licence area plan in December 2001, the ABA has decided to begin allocating a community licence for the Latrobe Valley. The original planning process identified a demand for a new community service, operated by people living in this region.

Interested applicants should contact the ABA’s Licensing Section on 1 800 226 667 or (02) 9334 7700 for copies of the information booklet. General information is also available on the ABA website:
