Initially formed in 1983, it encompasses the local authority area, including Canvey Island and parts of the mainland, named after historic sites Hadleigh Castle and Canvey Point. Known for high homeownership, low social deprivation, yet one of the lowest levels of graduates nationwide, its residents are primarily skilled workers, commuters, and the self-employed. Since its creation, it's predominantly been held by Conservatives, except in 1997 when Labour won. Bob Spink, the MP before Harris, switched from Conservative to briefly joining UKIP then became an Independent before losing in 2010. Castle Point had the biggest Conservative majority in 2017 and increased it in 2019.
