  1. The news about Fenlon Dunphy quitting is from August 2016, I don't think anything of note has happened for quite a while.
    Thanks to Paramount pulling out this is now a theme park with no theme. They did have some sort of "Hurrah for British Things / Fairytale land" concept knocking round but even that seems to have died a death.
    Going to their own website http://londonresort.info results in a slideshow of tourist/travel stock photos seemingly put together in 1998 and vague talk of regeneration, jobs, jobs again and err.... potential! How about a theme though? The last downloadable documents are from 2015 and still feature Paramount.
    Really, why not stick a monorail in there and have done with it?

    Despite recent assurances that the project is going ahead, and a renewed set of publicity rearing it's head in the UK with the same old headlines and artwork they have been using for years, it looks like prestigious leaders are now leaving the project.

    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.

  3. No, Camelot is (or was) in Lancashire. At least 4 hours driving away from London.

    Oh I thought it was

  5. The old camelot theme park isn’t close enough to London to be considered.

  6. I’m still very confident this park will never see the light of day. I maintain that it is simply another development scam. Sorry folks.

    What if the abandoned camelot theme gets demolished for Universal studios London

  8. Swanscombe weather pattern much the same as Paris if not better as Gravesend is always the hottest place in the UK

    I can't find the source of the information on this appointment but seems they are bringing more people on board the project.

    [email protected] Company Holdings have this week appointed a new director, Alan Crane, in the role of ‘Construction Consultant’. Perhaps of most interest amongst his experience in the construction industry is his involvement in Euro Disney, the original name of @DisneylandParis.

  10. Same, I feel like someone on this site just had wishful thinking and just added it.
