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.

Health & Wellbeing Strategy

Castle Point and Rochford’s Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2019-2021

Together with Rochford District Council, we have developed our joint three year Health and Wellbeing Strategy. It presents how we will work together with partners to provide residents with the services, skills and support to manage their own health and wellbeing and subsequently make positive changes.

Our strategy is closely aligned to the Essex Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy, published in 2018, and is accompanied by an action plan which details what work is being done to meet each of the three health and wellbeing priorities we have identified:
