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.
