Abstract

There is little doubt that any development of this magnitude will have a substantial impact on the local community. Because of this, there is a need for open discussion and feedback from a wide audience on the various aspects of site selection, investigations and development, environmental protection, monitoring and control of repository operations. It is important, in particular, that the local community is represented at every stage of the development so that benefits to local people can be maximised and any disadvantages minimised.1
