Regeneration Projects

The priorities for Regeneration in the Borough are guided by the Castle Point Regeneration Partnership. 

Several regeneration projects have already been completed or continue to progress, despite the challenging economic picture.

Hadleigh Town Centre

Hadleigh Town Centre has seen improvements delivered in partnership with Essex Highways on a public realm scheme that improved the town centre with improved paving and realignment of the bus stops.

Following the demolition of the Crown Public House, approval has been granted for the use of the Island Site as a meanwhile space and the Hadleigh Community Group will be providing planters for flowers for the site until further development plans are developed and approved.

The team are currently working with a range of partners to develop an economically viable proposal for the Island Site that accommodates community needs for this important area.  

Canvey Island

Canvey Seafront is in the midst of regeneration with work underway by Team 2100 on the revetment to protect the Island from flooding.  A key development project at Thorney Bay has now been approved with a new pavilion, improved parking, café and toilet facilities.  The construction work starts in early 2024 and is scheduled to complete by the end of 2024. 

With the purchase of the Knightswick Centre in 2019, the Council is also now planning a programme to invest in improvements to the Canvey Town Centre area.

The market at the Knightswick Shopping Centre on Canvey Island was introduced as part of our regeneration programme. The market operates on a weekly basis (every Thursday) and offers a diverse mix of products.  Visit the Canvey Island market page to find out more:
