Caithness residents are being given a say on the condition they would like the atomic plant at Dounreay left in following the site's £2.7bn clean-up.
Decommissioning of Dounreay should be completed by 2033
Options range from a green-field site to one with some contaminated ground where access would be restricted and a security presence needed.
There is also the possibility of industrial or commercial use.
The Dounreay Decommissioning Authority has asked the Dounreay Stakeholders Group to gather community opinions.
A spokeswoman for the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA), which operates Dounreay, said: "This community has lived with Dounreay for 50 years.
"It would be great to get their input into how the site should be redeveloped."
The Dounreay site is expected to be levelled by 2033 after the completion of decommissioning.
