Channel 7 has been working with the communities in Northern Lincolnshire for nearly 14 years now and we are the last local TV station now running in Britain.

For the first time ever, the Government has seen the potential for local television and are making plans to give local TV some coverage on a new Freeview channel. If this goes ahead, it will most likely happen within the next 18 months and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) are asking for responses from the general public and media industry about how
local TV can look.

We want our area to be part of this new initiative – the Government are currently looking to prioritise cities, but this could be great for our area. Your support and opinions are really valuable so Government knows that we are keen to be involved in our part of the country.
We would be grateful therefore if you would please fill in this short survey and we will forward it onto DCMS.

Please feel free to give Lia Nici a call if you would like to talk about this in more detail on 01469 515151. The deadline is very quick – this Friday 8th April, but hopefully that will mean you will take the 5 minutes to do the survey just after you finish reading this!
