The Government is placing a strong emphasis on community consultation and engagement throughout each stage of the project.
Because of this the department will work closely with communities that agree to proceed to the next stage of the process to develop a detailed project proposal as well as the structure for the community benefits measures.
Once the facility is constructed, its ongoing operation will involve community representation on the facility management board and regular engagement through open days. To ensure full public transparency the site will release all environmental and other monitoring data. It is also the intention that the site and its employees work with the community in ways that see them become a valued part of the local community.
Regarding the nominated site at Wallerberdina Station, near Hawker in South Australia, visit the team at the Old Hawker Council Offices Foresters Hall, 72 Cradock Road, Hawker on Tuesdays and Wednesdays or at the Quorn Council Chambers on Thursdays.
The National Radioactive Waste Management Facility project is on Facebook. You are able to make comments, post queries and share information we provide through the page. The department will update the Facebook page on a regular basis and provide updates on the process moving forward.
