LOCALS are urged to have their say on nuclear as part of the state’s largest community engagement program.
Teams from the state government’s Nuclear Consultation and Response Agency will run sessions at more than 100 sites including 10 on the Eyre Peninsula.
The key themes discussed will be community consent and the importance of an informed opinion, economics including the benefits and risks to the state, safety including key issues around storage, health and transport, and trust.
Eyre Peninsula consultation sessions will run from 11am to 7pm at Streaky Bay on August 2, Ceduna on August 3, Elliston on August 4, Port Lincoln on August 5, Kimba on August 16, Cummins on August 17, Cowell on August 18, with separate Aboriginal community consultation at Port Lincoln and Ceduna.
