CHAIN have been exceptionally busy over the past couple of months and have produced a new website at the same time as staging a public meeting in Middlewich.

Public Meeting
On 5th June 2008 CHAIN held a public meeting in Middlewich to give the people of Middlewich the opportunity to find out for themselves what would happen if they allowed Covanta to build an incinerator in their town.

It is particularly unfortunate for Middlewich that they are faced with the proposal of a 390,000 tonne incinerator as only last year they lost a long running battle with HJ Banks who now have planning permission to operate a landfill site on the edge of town. If the incinerator goes ahead it will be sited less than half a mile away from the landfill site, which might come in handy for disposing of all that bottom ash…?

Over 150 residents turned up for the meeting along with two local councillors and following a talk by CHAIN Chairman Mr Brian Cartwright there was a lively Q&A session. Following the meeting CHAIN were heartened by the generosity of donations and the number of signatures we received on our petition. CHAIN now have over 10,000 signatures against incineration in Cheshire.

Website
Following months of heard work CHAIN are delighted to unveil their new website at www.anti-incinerator.org.uk. The site has had a complete facelift and the old outdated material has been removed and new content inserted. We are fortunate to have had the help of a professional copywriter in this task and the results are a cleaner site with much better content and navigation. We have also been able to update the site to a new Content Management System which allows us to make changes on a regular basis without having to engage the services of a web designer.

We have also been able to acquire a phone number for general enquiries, 0845 956 9799 which goes straight to an answering machine. This message is then sent straight to the email system of one of our members who can respond straight away.

If you feel there is anything we are missing on the site, or you would like a link to your group included please let us know. Email details are on the site.
