Lyn and Claire Kemp declare their faith in a nuclear waste dump for Kimba

Lyn & Claire Kemp (no 88) Submission To; Committee Secretariat, Senate Standing Committee on Economics re Proposed National Radioactive Waste Facility

We have been a resident in Kimba since 1959 and 1945 respectively. We are happy to provide the committee with this submission relating to the selection process for a national radioactive waste management facility in the Kimba District.

We have no objection to the hosting of a Radioactive Waste Facility on either of the sites chosen.

We think the process has been very fair and the information that has been made available to the residents has been good for the community.

The additional financial benefit to the land owner is minimal and has no bearing on any decision. Considering the government needs land for this project, this seems fair to us.

The community has had ample time to learn and discuss any issues about this facility with the staffed Office in the main street of Kimba.

There has been town meetings with our M.P. and delegations from overseas giving us an insight into what is involved and it is clear that there is no risk or impact on the farming industry at all neither locally or in the surrounding areas. I disagree that we need “broader community views” and believe we have no need to stretch boundaries outside the District Council of Kimba.

We can only see a positive outcome for our town.

  1. New jobs will be a start and fill some of the empty houses in Kimba.
  2. 2. We will receive more essential town services (Doctor) which our town has been struggling to keep over the last few years.
  3. 3. It will give an opportunity for existing businesses to expand and hopefully encourage new business into the town.
  4. 4. Improved internet and phone services.
  5. 5. The Benefit Fund is already in the process of being submitted and a number of facilities will benefit. The town is struggling and the population is declining. Our belief is twelve months after the Facility is built people will have forgotten it is there.
