Local radio station for West Somerset, Quaywest 102.4, is facing eviction from its premises in Watchet following its owners, Laser Broadcasting, failing to pay rent on the offices and studio for two years, reports Radio Today.
Local council officials have said that the company has failed to pay the £50 a week rent for the property, owned by Somerset Council.
Tom Bown, the district council’s corporate information officer said: ‘Quaywest Radio has not paid the council any rent since 2006 despite efforts by the council to get them to do so and assurances by the station that it would.
‘We feel that it is not fair that this company is expanding on a national level at the expense of the local taxpayers in West Somerset. With regret, we have been left no option other than to take legal action.”
