Consultation description

The public responses to this consultation were published on 10 April 2012.

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport is consulting on potential changes to the regulatory framework that applies to independent producers in the context of local TV.

DCMS is committed to removing regulations which are unnecessarily burdensome to local TV providers. As part of this, we are now consulting on proposals to remove both the obligation for local TV licensees to commission at least 10% of qualifying content from independent producers, and to remove the restrictions for independent producers owning local TV services. Removal of these burdens should in turn encourage greater participation in the local TV bidding process and support the long-term success and sustainability of local TV.
