Australian news, and some related international items

Give your opinion. Should there be more community consultation on designating the South Australian farm Napandee as nuclear dump site?

Is more nuclear consultation needed? | POLL. – vote at this link

20 Aug 2021 Federal Resources Minister Keith Pitt believes the Napandee site near Kimba on the Eyre Peninsula should host the country’s radioactive waste storage facility.

……. But before the decision can be made official, a period of further consultation needs to occur, with the Minister considering relevant comments ahead of deciding whether to proceed with declaring the Napandee site.

Earlier this year, the federal government backed down on a key detail of the National Radioactive Waste Management Amendment (Site Selection, Community Fund and Other Measures) Bill 2020. The bill had the chosen site listed as Napandee, but Labor refused support it on the premise that confirming the site in legislation would prevent the possibility of a future legal challenge.
