Limavady Council officials are planning a return of a temporary radio station.

The station first hit the aiwaves during year-long celebrations of the 400th anniversary of the town charter two years ago. Residents of the borough living within three to four miles of the town centre were able to tune in over the course of three days.

Council’s director of development, Valerie Richmond said the radio station would be a good way to celebrate everything good about the borough before Limavady Council goes out of existance in April 2015. She said when it broadcast the first time it received good feedback, and it was a great way to involve local people.

Cost of the project would be under £5,000, said Ms Richmond. She said the plan was to have the station broadcast during a weekend in late March, 2015.

Councillors gave their support for the project.

Sinn Fein Councillor Rory Donaghy asked if there was an opportunity for the station to stream live to allow people outside the borough to listen in.
