"The London Resort" New Theme Park Moves Forward With Plans.

A new name with the same big plans, The London Resort moves forward with new details and plans.


“We want to express our sincere thanks to the many members of the Paramount team who have worked with us since we took over the project in August 2013,” he said. “This announcement does not have an effect on the timing of our planned Development Consent Order (DCO) submission in November 2017. We are working closely with the local authorities, landowners and local community, as well as our other stakeholders. We very much look forward to showing our plans to the public as part of our final stage of consultation prior to submitting later this year.”

The new theme park’s name – and logo – The London Resort was revealed to Kent business groups. They were also introduced to attendees at the Construction Expo at Detling’s Kent Event Centre.
The attraction is planned for a site on the Swanscombe Peninsula between Gravesend and Dartford, alongside the Thames.  The 535 acre (216 hectare) “tourist attraction of a scale and quality unprecedented in the UK” will be just 17 minutes from London by high-speed rail. LRCH’s plans include a world-class theme park, cinemas and nightclubs together with conference and exhibition space. Popular brands, IPs and stories will be brought to life from film and TV with state-of-the-art rides and attractions. The projected opening date is currently 2023. It is expected to create around 27,000 jobs.
LRCH executives also revealed that partners and intellectual properties would be disclosed by the end of the year. Agreements are still in place with Aardman and BBC Worldwide. This will be ahead of a fifth round of public consultations on the plans next year. -BlooLoop

Overall this is good news as plans proceed to move forward, while we can expect more delays, the project continues to move forward, slowly but surely.
