Subject to this, such an application for the renewal of a local licence may be made by the licence holder8 not earlier than three years before the date on which it would otherwise cease to be in force9 and not later than the day falling three months before the relevant date10.

The applicant must, in his application or at any time before the consideration of his application, nominate11 a local digital sound programme service12 provided or to be provided by him13,
