We ask that all residents #StayHomeSaveLives – see a Message from the Leader of the Council


Message from Mayor of Castle Point Councillor Colin Riley

From July 4th new changes on lockdown come into place. Pubs, bars and restaurants are able to open subject to government guidelines.

We want our residents to enjoy themselves but it is important we all act responsibly.  

  • Stay alert and stay safe to help prevent spreading the virus.
  • Keep a safe distance from others  and continue to wash your hands regularly.

If you do go to the  pub, have fun but be sensible;show respect for others and do not do anything that puts you or other people at risk.

Annual Canvass of the Register of Electors

The annual canvass takes place every year around July/August and is used to ensure that the data we have on the register of electors is accurate and up to date.  We would encourage residents to respond to the first Household Enquiry Form received as this will prevent us sending reminders.

Information regarding the Annual Canvass 2020 will appear here in due course.

For further information and enquiries please contact the Electoral Services Team by email: or call 01268 882200.
