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.

Regeneration Projects

Castle Point sits within the Thames Gateway, a designated national priority for regeneration and growth.

Regeneration is needed to address important issues relating to the future wellbeing of the Borough. These issues include re-energising and expanding industrial and commercial areas to attract business investment and create more local jobs reducing the current high level of out-commuting; revitalising town centres to make them more attractive to existing residents to increase the proportion of resident spend currently being lost to other towns, and as business and housing locations; and improving the leisure and recreational opportunities on Canvey seafront.

Castle Point Regeneration Partnership, a network of individuals and organisations committed to the future prosperity of the Borough, is leading the regeneration process and is working to identify and develop projects which respond to the Borough’s challenges and opportunities.

In April 2008, the Castle Point Regeneration Partnership launched its  Regeneration Framework [pdf] 2MB This document sets out short term actions to be taken in phase one of the delivery programme.
