BBC’s local plans could be rejected


by David Allen

The BBC’s plans to expand into a network of local websites, had appeared to be a threat to the local press - and when the BBC were talking about investing £68 million of public money into the project it showed that they meant business.

However, there have been some high profile words, including those of ministers, who feel that this is a move too far by the BBC and should not go ahead.

Now it seems that both the BBC Trust and the media regulator Ofcom are about to put an end to speculation and stop the BBC from creating these national networks of local websites.

Even if the BBC Trust and Ofcom fail to convince the BBC to stop this project, the culture secretary Andy Burnham can make the BBC stop this development and allow the local press to continue in this sector with no real competition.
