    Dead born

    In december 2012, I analysed the proposal.
    Was very sceptic about market feasibility. (Not feasible, based on the market only)
    Since march 2013, I could analyse the proposal again, with business references.
    Feasibility was dead. In this second review : financial feasibility was dead born as well.
    Shared my analysis with several other IAAPA consultant members.
    There were 2 camps :
    - those who thought they could still earn some share of the dead-born kids development money,
    - and those who got a clear view of no-go as well.
    Opportunist money grabbing has aways existed. They do not care at all if a project gets born bankrupt.
    I still doubt that all concept designers have been paid...
    Anyway, feasibility on this project is negative. Since start. And that's it...

    This is the most up to date Google Earth (April 2017) and, as you can see, there is nothing going on. We won't see anything until they get the planning application in around November I think.

    Resort planning application remains on track for November 2017 as Paramount and LRCH discontinue licence agreement
    The website shows the plan for the park:


    1. A world-class theme park with themed rides, attractions and experiences, as well as daytime and night-time shows and parades
    2. A range of hotels including flexible space capable of hosting conferences, exhibitions and events
    3. A range of indoor entertainment including cinema and nightclubs
    4. Themed food and beverage outlets and retail
    5. Control centre and guest service facilities
    6. Transport improvements including a dedicated dual carriageway access road between the A2 and the Entertainment Resort
    7. A green network to include areas of environmental enhancement and wildlife habitat creation beside the River Thames
    8. A range of connectivity improvements including public footpaths and cycle routes along the River Thames and enhancements to the existing jetty on the river to facilitate access by boat
    9. Thousands of onsite car park spaces plus provision for coaches, motorcycles and bicycles
    10. Enhancements to flood defence works
    11. Landscaping including water features such as ponds

  4. Does anyone have any pictures of the actual site?

  5. 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
