Technological developments and changes in listener behaviours are affecting radio broadcasting services in Australia. Demand for use of radiofrequency spectrum to deliver radio broadcasting services is growing, and in many parts of Australia, spectrum is congested.
In May 2019, we released an issues paper to hear about the delivery of radio. We also wanted to consider whether there needed to be any changes to support radio services into the future. In March 2020, we published our Future delivery of radio report to the then Minister for Communications, Cyber Safety and the Arts.
The report identified 4 broadcasting spectrum priority activities to help support radio and inform our planning and licence allocation activity, including temporary community broadcasting allocations.
Against this backdrop, we consider it timely to revise and clarify our current guidelines. We are inviting comments from interested stakeholders on proposed changes to the guidelines, which apply to community radio services.
