    The project is alive, but the Paramount licensing deal is dead.

    Developers building a giant theme park in Kent have made a shock split with Paramount Pictures, the film studio which was to lend its name to the resort’s rides and attractions.

    London Resort Company Holdings, which first revealed plans for the £3.2 billion project in 2012, said cutting ties with the Hollywood giants would not affect its goal to submit a planning application in November.
    Confirming the Paramount split, LRCH chief executive Humphrey Percy said: “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.

    Paramount Developers LRCH have signed a deal with IHG hotel group to build the hotels for this park.

    The agreement, known as a "heads of terms", will allow the group to operate up to 4,000 guest rooms across the site on the Swanscombe Peninsula between Gravesend and Dartford.
    The plans will go on display at a public exhibition due to be held in the autumn, with the sites due to be ready in time for the resort’s opening date in 2022.

    Artistic impression of how London Paramount could look inside when it opens in 2022


    Mr Percy’s big announcement for his trip to the county was that the application – known as a development consent order (DCO) – will be submitted to the government by November, with a decision expected by summer 2019.
    To get the DCO over the finish line in November, Mr Percy has made two boardroom appointments. Mike Morrison, who has held senior positions at investment bank Morgan Stanley and WestLB AG, has been hired as chief financial officer and Kevin Doyle, who has worked on the project from the start, has been appointed DCO coordinator.
    In an interview with the new boss, Humphrey Percy:

    On relationship with Peninsula Management Group:
    “Certain parametres have been set out, there has been a lot of discussion and that will continue. “I can’t say whether their demands are realistic or not at the moment because we are going to be having more detailed conversations in the next weeks and months.”
    On relationship with Paramount Pictures:
    “A week before last I had a very good meeting with them and we continue to talk to them about our plans,” said Mr Percy. “We have shared with them our intention to submit that DCO application in November.”

    London Paramount look to put in planning application in November in order to put the project on track to open in 2022. Peninsula Management Group, who represent 140 businesses occupying land on the potential resort site, have criticised the proposals.
    “We are not against London Paramount, but we have businesses here that need to be compensated. “These are family businesses, they might end having to relocate 20 miles. That would mean moving a family as well. “There are 2,700 jobs at risk, we are in the most strategically important part of the plot they require.”

    The "heart" of the resort will be an indoor, covered and open-air experience that will host a couple of exhibitions and music events. Every day, during afternoons, there will be a "Paramount and Friends Carnival," where costumed people and themed rides take place.
    "We are planning to follow this every evening with a spectacular show celebrating the works of Paramount Pictures and our other content partners," Paramount said in its website. During the evenings, a West End production will take place around the park where it could show Paramount films, BBC and Aardman productions and live concerts and performances

    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.

    “This announcement reaffirms our determination to submit our application for the Entertainment Resort.

    “I am delighted to be directly overseeing the plans for the proposed Entertainment Resort in North Kent and welcome Mike and Kevin in their new roles as CFO and DCO Coordinator, respectively.
