    According to the latest meeting of NSIP, they are still "on their way" for submitting their plans to the board. However with 2 weeks left in December to make it within their own timescale. Concerning leaving the EU, the UK has better things to do than building a theme park, like sorting out the aftermath of the departure.

    Personally I see myself as realistic, this park was suppose to open in 2020 with permit filing in 2016. This hasn't happened until now, and according to your post they have again delayed the timeline and moved it to 2021.

    What makes me more worried is that up to now, no details have been shown on what is going to attract people to the park. If you compare this with relevant projects like Universal's Epic Universe, the filing of official documents show detailed masterplans of what each section of the park is going to be. Up to this point London Resort has shown intentions of what's to come except for concepts with generic themes. This is weird as they claim to have ITV, Paramount and BBC behind them for IP's, so where are the IP inspired concepts?

    They are asking people to sign off on the DCO with no knowledge on what the both parks offering into the mix of all hotels, E-Arena and other side offerings within a resort. Basically they are now selling Disney Village with the hotels without telling what the parks are.

    I would love to have a resort 30 minutes from my home, but let's be realistic, this has been going on since 2015 without any construction as of yet.

As long as London Resorts keep faffing about with their permit request, like they have done over the last five years, they will not start constructing anytime soon. The permit request was suppose to happen in Q4 of this year, however I haven't seen this done as off yet. If they don't do the permit soon, the opening of 2024 might be a very difficult deadline to reach.

    Hi guys, sorry if this has been asked before!

    I live very locally and am very much in favour of the Resort, how confident are you guys that the Resort will actually go ahead given that it has been on the horizon for many years now?
    I believe it will as the government has recognised it as a significant infrastructure project and an experienced CEO has been appointed. I hope this answered your question.

    The lands you suggest (other than Top Gun) seem to all be those from the other Paramount Parks such as Peanuts Land, Adventure City and Dinotopia.

    This concept art was published around 2017 so should have been updated by now.

    Here's an interesting layout of The London Resort that I came across... I assume that it is an older design but I'm not sure. A couple differences to note in this layout compared to the layout officially released (https://www.themeparx.com/the-london-resort-paramount-park-london/?p=20014#post20014):

    - In the far right area of theme park which might be named "Adventure City" there's airplanes arranged in rows plus a ship in the water and a large roller coaster. Could this be a Top Gun-themed area on its own or a part of Adventure City?

    - The retail, dining, and entertainment area plus hotels and waterpark seem to arranged slightly differently and it's entirely indoors.





    This is just speculation but currently I'm thinking the themed-areas of The London Resort's theme park will be (going clockwise starting at the entrance):

    1. Final Frontier (Star Trek)
    2. Lost Kingdom (Tomb Raider)
    3. Dinotopia
    4. Camelot/King Arthur
    5. Peanuts Town
    6. Adventure City (The Italian Job, Grease, The Godfather, Mission: Impossible, Top Gun)

    Technically a seventh themed area is the park's "main street" which could be before or after the park's actual entrance.

    The concept in the video appears to be that from the Paramount Kunming park
