The rumour mill suggested that may bethecase last week after a dump proposal site hadhit condemnation from locals in South Australia..

But the process is proceeding so its not a question of back to square one as some may have suggested according to Federal Member for Maranoa, David Littleproud.

He pointed out that nominations are open for “local” community members to join the Barndioota Consultative Committee (BCC), the next step in the consideration of a site for a National Radioactive Waste Management Facility in South Australia.

Wallerberdina station near Barndiootain the Flinders Ranges hadbeen picked as a possible siteafter Inglewood had been taken out of the equation.

“The Government is engaging with local communities every step of the way during this process, and this committee will be another way for residents to be directly involved,” Minister for Resources and Northern Australia Matt Canavan said.

“The appointment of the Barndioota Consultative Committee is the next important step in this consultation process, which will help the local community decide whether this project is right for this region.

“The Government is determined to find a suitable location for a facility to manage Australia’s radioactive waste, which is mainly generated as a direct result of the production of nuclear medicine, needed by an average of one in two Australians at some point during their lifetime.

“Over the past 50 years, Australia’s waste has been managed using ad-hoc, temporary solutions in more than 100 locations around the country. While it is stored safely and securely, Australia needs a permanent purpose-built facility.

The committee will meet regularly during the consultation process and provide advice on aspects of the proposal including a$2 million Community Benefit Scheme.

“There are a number of jobs, business opportunities and community benefits that would come alongside the facility for Australia’s waste. But we understand there are also important questions local residents want to ask,” Minister Canavan said.It would all soundfamiliar to Inglewood residents.And onlytime will tell what happens next.
