Concerns Port Kembla could be a military target if it becomes an Australian nuclear submarine base

Wollongong councillor Cath Blakey said her community is alarmed by the prospect of a nuclear submarine base being built on its doorstep.

"It's causing alarm that it could make us a potential military target," Ms Blakey said.

"We want to see the focus on peacekeeping and public infrastructure, not nuclear proliferation. I think it's a potential sovereign risk to Australia to be hitching ourselves to the US and the UK."
