The decision to progress the site to phase 2 is based on the responsible minister's assessment of whether broad community support exists. There is no specified threshold for support, as this motion asserts. Broad community support includes a consideration by the minister of a range of stakeholders' views, including those of the general community, traditional owners, businesses and adjacent neighbours. Information regarding the decision to proceed to the next phase of assessment for the two proposed sites for a radioactive waste management facility at Kimba is available on the National Radioactive Waste Management Facility's website.
