Supporting Local High Streets

The national lockdown that came into effect in early January of this year meant that many of the businesses on our high streets had to shut to help control the spread of Coronavirus. This included the market within Canvey Town Centre.

From 12th April 2021, Step 2 of the Government’s Roadmap for the easing of Covid restrictions has come into effect and allows the opening of more businesses including non-essential retail; personal care premises such as hairdressers, beauty and nail salons; and indoor leisure facilities such as gyms and spas (but not including saunas and steam rooms, which are due to open at Step 3).

Canvey Market will also re-open. For further information, please check the Government website here: List of restrictions and details of which businesses can open

The Council is keen to promote the safe re-opening of the Castle Point businesses and would encourage visitors to return safely to our retail areas.  For further information on local businesses, including ones where you may be able to shop online, please see Information on the businesses in our town centres.

Please remember, if you are visiting local essential shops, or using click and collect or takeaway services, please observe social distancing rules and wear a face covering.

REMEMBER: Hands, Face, Space
