NRWMF Community Ballot

The current ballot process has been suspended due to court action under the Racial Discrimination Act. Please refer to Council's Facebook page for updates.
On Thursday 23 August 2018 the matter was referred by the Supreme Court to Human Rights Commission for conciliation. At the first concilliation hearing the matter was deferred for another two weeks to enable parties to gather more information. The concilliation process has failed and the parties will be back in court in the near future.

As a consequence, the ballot continues to remain suspended.

Council had agreed to facilitate a vote through the Australian Electoral Commission for a ballot on the proposed National Radioactive Waste Management Facility on Wallerberdina Station. The ballot question will be “Do you support the proposed National Radioactive Waste Management Facility in your community?”.

The information papers that Council requested be made available to the community are all available here: http://www.radioactivewaste.gov.au/site-selection-process/key-documents-and-faqs
