The Department is calling for submissions about the proposed National Radioactive Waste Management Facility in Kimba or the Flinders Ranges and says these will be "one of the factors the Minister for Resources and Northern Australia may take into account when determining broad community support for the Facility."

The communities of Kimba on the Eyre Peninsula and the Flinders Ranges were asked to participate in a ballot to gauge community sentiment about the NRWMF proposal, although the results would not be binding on Minister Canavan. Many affected people were ineligible to vote, including Traditional Owners who live outside the ballot area. The Barngarla People, Native Title holders for the Kimba area, applied to the Supreme Court of SA for an injunction on the ballot.  The matter was referred to the Human Rights Commission to determine if the exclusion of Native Title holders from the ballot breaches the Racial Discrimination Act.

Minister Canavan is hoping to select a site by the end of 2018 – if you or others who are interested are not eligible to vote in the community you are still able to make a comment and express your view by sending DIIS a submission..
