Local businesses urged to have their say on future development

We are preparing a plan that will guide development in Castle Point up to 2050. In order to shape this plan, we are listening to local communities and local stakeholders to ensure that their views are central to what the plan proposes. We are looking to understand what local people value about their local areas and what they would like to see improved.

We would like to invite all our local businesses to engage with us on the Castle Point Plan - we want to hear your views and help us to define what the needs of businesses are to create an ideal environment and infrastructure to support your business.


We’d like to hear about:

  • The types of industrial and commercial spaces required
  • Infrastructure requirements such as roads, internet connectivity and energy
  • What can be done to the public spaces in high streets and industrial estates to support businesses
  • What can be done to ensure you have the skilled staff you need for your business
  • What business support services you need to help your business grow
