Regeneration and Business Support
These are exciting times for Castle Point. It might be a relatively overlooked borough, in comparison to its neighbours Southend and Basildon, but Castle Point continues to play a key role in Europe’s largest regeneration project.
Castle Point became an Olympic Borough in 2012 staging the Mountain Bike Event at Hadleigh Country Park.
Providing the foundation for business success are The Castle Point Regeneration Partnership, a network of individuals and organisations committed to the future prosperity of the Borough. It continues to work to identify, develop and deliver high quality regeneration projects which respond to the Borough’s challenges and opportunities. A number of regeneration projects have already been completed or continue to progress, despite the challenging economy.
