Despite divided community opinions, Kimba has been confirmed as the site for Australia's National Radioactive Waste Management Facility.

The announcement was made on Saturday by then-federal Resources Minister Matthew Canavan, following a consultation and technical assessment process spanning more than four years.

Those who want to see the facility built locally see it as a potential game-changer for the region, providing long-term employment and solidifying the town's future at a time when many country towns are struggling to maintain services and are seeing their populations decline.

On the other side of the debate, those against the facility believe it would threaten the clean, green image of the local agricultural sector, putting markets at risk and jeopardising the major industry that has supported the region for decades and decades. Many are also concerned about the potential safety risks for their community should something go wrong.

In this week's poll, we want to know - where do you stand?
