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.
Equality Scheme review consultation 2019
Castle Point Borough Council aims to reduce inequality, eliminate discrimination, strengthen good relations between people and protect human rights, ensuring that everyone has fair access to the services we provide.
We are in the process of preparing our 2019/2023 equality scheme and want to work closely with those who have an interest in what we do. This will help us to develop a scheme to ensure that our priorities and future work plans meet the needs of those we provide services to and those who provide services on behalf of the Council to our community. We intend to use an open consultation approach for the development of our four year equality scheme and hope that you will contribute to this process. The outcomes from the consultation will be used to inform our thinking and shape our future policies, so your views really do matter.
