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 is at the very heart of Thames Gateway South Essex and continues to plays a key role in Europe’s largest regeneration project.

Map of Castle Point
Castle Point has all the key ingredients to help drive the region forward. Just 30 miles from central London, it has crucial transport links, beautiful green spaces and, perhaps most importantly, a population that is committed to achieving sustainable business success.

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.

These projects include town centre regeneration, new road infrastructure, new, top class education facilities and investment in our Industrial Estates - all part of a package of half-billion pound worth of initiatives set to further transform the Borough as a place to live and do business. Details of all projects are contained within the Castle Point Regeneration Framework [pdf] 2MB
