Who are CHASE?
CHASE is an umbrella organization for groups determined to protect the health of their communities and safeguard the harbour environment for future generations.

CHASE is represented at a local level by groups in Carrigaline, Cobh, Cork, Crosshaven, Douglas, Kinsale, Midleton, Monkstown/Glenbrook/Passage, Ringaskiddy and Youghal. These are your voice in the campaign for a safe environment, and most urgently, for preventing construction of a hazardous waste incinerator at Ringaskiddy.

Making your voice heard
With your support CHASE has campaigned vigorously against the proposed incinerator: raising awareness, lobbying our elected representatives, and making detailed, reasoned objections to the planning authority and Oral Hearing.

But the campaign continues, and we need your help!

This Quick Guide is a reminder of the issues involved, why we should care and what we can do.
