1.7 NUCLEAR FREE ZONE

Policy Statement

The City of Subiaco has declared that the entire municipal district of Subiaco is a nuclear free zone.

Policy Application

Recognising that its powers and responsibilities are limited the Council’s position is that within the municipality:

  • no nuclear weapons or devices may be stored, transported or used
  • no nuclear power stations or enrichment plants may be built or operated, and
  • no uranium or other material connected with the nuclear armament or power industry may be mined, stored or transported.

The Council is not opposed to the responsible use, transport, storage or disposal of radioactive substances for bio-medical and technological purposes, as it believes that the benefits to the users out-weigh the risk to the community at large.
