    Business owners of the 3 industrial estates in Swanscombe do not find the timelines set by Paramount developers realistic...



    Businesses facing upheaval from a future Paramount resort in Kent have accused developers of “fairytale thinking” for aiming to submit their planning application by November. Representatives of more than 140 companies and landowners affected by the £3.5 billion project on Swanscombe Peninsula said its bosses had “woefully underestimated” the level of work involved.
    Earlier this month, the new chief executive of London Paramount said the attraction is on target to open by 2022 after pushing back the opening date three times.He said a decision by the Government on its planning application is expected by summer 2019.That was met with scepticism from business owners at Kent Kraft, Manor Way Business Park and Northfleet Industrial Estate, which will be swallowed up by the theme park should it get the go-ahead.

    If everything stays on the current schedule, they say construction work can begin by 2019
    The theme park will be built on the Swanscombe Peninsula near Dartford, Kent, and could bring in up to 33,000 jobs


    A massive 11,000 square metre exhibition centre is planned for the centre of the park


    It will feature a 2,000-seat theatre, more than 50 rides and attractions and a nightclub
    It is said the park will include zones such as Adventure Isle, Land of Legends, Cartoon Circus, Starfleet Command, Action Square, Port Paramount and Entertainment City.

    But London Paramount is having a reshuffle so hopefully this will bring new energy to the project. (See the latest news section on their website).

    Chinese companies could get preferential access to contracts in exchange for investments.
    Chinese companies may get preferential treatment for contracts to build a £3.2 billion entertainment resort in Kent in exchange for future investment.

    David Testa, chief executive of London Paramount, said Far East investors were delaying putting in cash for the theme park and hotel complex until they could discuss joining the supply chain for the project.

    So far, 900 companies have registered an interest, many of them in Britain.

    More bad news for Paramount Park.

    One of London Paramount’s prominent figureheads has walked away from the project, just two months after the developer made a public assurance that the theme park was on track.

    Fenlon Dunphy has played a major role in progressing the plans for the £2bn (US$3bn, €2.8bn) Kent-based theme park and resort, attending many of the public consultations and exhibitions held by developer London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH).

    Progress on the project seemingly slowed when a planning application that was expected last year was delayed, but LRCH insists the scheme is going ahead.

    Dunphy has given no reason for his departure, but local news provider Kent Online reports CEO David Testa is continuing as CEO and the rest of the team will stay the same.

    Dunphy remains UK boss at LRCH’s parent company and Paramount’s largest investor, Kuwaiti European Holdings (KEHC), which he joined in 2013. KEHC is owned by Abdullah Al-Humaidi, who oversees the theme park and resort development alongside Testa and former politician Steven Norris.

    What about the traffic on the A2 that is grid locked most days before the 15000 new homes in the area?
