The introduction of the report includes:
“The Borough of Castle Point is situated on the coastline of south east Essex and has an area of approximately 17.3 square miles. It benefits from good links to London such as the Fenchurch Street railway line, the dual carriageways of the A13 and the A127, which link within half an hour to the M25 motorway. Castle Point as an area has a long history but is essentially modern in character, there are a few older buildings still remaining although major re-development took place mainly between the two world wars. “
