a programme to manage the cessation of the transmission of radio waves under that licence; and
notice in writing that the licence is revoked on a date specified in that programme.

during the term of the programme; and
after the licence is revoked.
The chief executive must consult with the licensee before revoking a licence under subclause (1).
