    What happens next. An application for the above project was received by the Planning Inspectorate from London Resort Company Holdings on 04 January 2021. The application documents for this application will be published on this website in due course.

    From the day after receipt of the application, the Planning Inspectorate has 28 days to review the application and decide whether or not to accept it. The acceptance decision on this application should therefore be made by Monday 01 February 2021.

    * As soon as practicable after the acceptance decision, publish the date on which the registration period will close.
    * From the opening day of the registration period (as determined by the Applicant’s notification and publication) make the Relevant Representation form available on this website.

    If the application is not accepted, we will:
    * Publish the decision letter and reasons why it hasn’t been accepted.
    * Remove all of the application documentation from this project page.

If this project does go through, I will miss this place and I'm many others too. North Kent in general already lacks accessible green space, so this is a massive blow, especially for an area named "Greenhithe".
    I agree, this project is very exciting and I’m pretty sure it will go ahead however you don’t need to be concerned about the lack of green space as much of the space will never be developed so there will be space for walks they may just be a bit shorter!

    They actually did inspect and have provided an environmental assessment report

  5. This cracks me up. ‘Former industrial site on brownfield’. They are liars. They are making no mention that the former industrial area is actually a busy fully working industrial estate. They haven’t gone about anything as they should. The area hasn’t even been inspected. This isn’t about a theme park. This is about building houses and hotels. They haven’t began to consider how the business’ will be relocated.

    While many might mistake it for an actual Disneyland, I think describing as the “UK’s answer to Disneyland” is their best bet at getting the general public to understand what it actually is. There are maybe three sorts of park the public might understand - amusement park, lower-budget theme park and higher-budget theme park - the UK has some amusement parks and lower-budget theme parks about that the public may have been to or at least know of, and it’s important that this potential development is understood to be very different to what the UK currently has on offer, so to make it clear that this will be different they say it’s similar to the one major high-budget chain that the public actually know - Disney.

    It isn’t great of course that some media outlets describe it as ‘UK Disneyland’ rather than ‘UK’s answer to Disneyland’, as that is a definite statement that it is a Disneyland.

    Ardman Animations actually pulled out the project now it’s just BBC, ITV and Paramount.

    Firstly the budget is nothing like Disneyland Paris.

    Thirdly - quality!

    The team of the London resort are all financial based people and all of their rides will be imagined by outside companies such as legacy entertainment, I am sick of this company saying they are making a theme park. To be honest it’s more likely that it will end up like a blank shopping centre or small un-themed amusement park.

    And finally to add on to the long list of negatives it simply has no financial backing, Disney has plenty but what does the resort have? Investors from a totally different country! Nether the less it would be brilliant to see this go ahead but what is there to actually talk about? There has been no public releases or proper progress for months even years other than some ever changing concept art!
    Whilst I agree with a lot of what you are saying and I’m very sceptical that a theme park will ever get built there I have to point out that Paramount isn’t the only IP signed on for the park. The have deals with BBC, ITV and Aardman. Not exactly anything I’m frilled about but it’s worth noting.

    My main concern is that very little is known about the financial backers of the park. It appears to just be Middle East investors rather than a single company with substantial investment.

    My guess is that the first phase will be a train station, hotels, apartments and leisure. Then the Theme Park will never happen.

    I hope I’m wrong.

    The DCO has been handed in to the UK government today, hopefully the plans will be approved! The government will decide on the adequacy of this project and at the end of a 28 day period we will here our news, of the plan gets rejected than I can expect that the London resort (LRCH) will probably stop and we will not here much from them from then. How ever if the plans are approved than we can expect more in depth details released around summer 2021 and a proper master plan released to the public by 2022.

    This has been a long process nearly a decade so it would be great for everyone who has been tugging along for the whole journey to see this project reach the light at the end of the tunnel!
