They’ve attended meetings and headed to Canberra to speak with Parliament, but one owner of the proposed site said it would be positive for the community.

Grant Chapman is a part owner ofWallerberdina, which is around 50km of Hawker, and said the owners support the need fora low-level facility.

“We think there’s a need for that to consolidate all of the low-level waste which is put in hospitals, universities,” he said.

“We think the area in Wallerberdina that is being looked at is a very suitable area for it, in terms of its geology and it is well away from any water courses or anything like that.”

“And there’s the potential benefit for the local Hawker community, with potentially $10 million being injected into the community.”

Mr Chapman said one of the most important things, if selected, would be the Hawker community determining how the money would be used instead of the council.

When asked about the potential impacts to tourism in what is sited as ‘pristine outback’, Mr Chapman said the site wasn’t near any of the main tourism points.

“There’s no reason for people to have concerns about the idea, it will be a purpose-built facility, it will be completely safe, it won’t be in any area where there is water courses,” he said.

“There’s also the potential benefits for the Hawker community and the jobs that it would bring, which they desperately need.”
