  1. My kids have promised to take me to The London Resort in my urn, because I surely will be long dead when this park is finally built.

    Back in October I shared real concept art of The London Resort (https://www.themeparx.com/the-london-resort-paramount-park-london/?p=24226#post24226) that is officially released as part of a presentation regarding investing in the resort's onsite Paramount Hotel. Now another website about investing in the resort's onsite Paramount Hotel has released another new piece of real concept art, this time showing what is clearly the Dinotopia area of the theme park:



    To learn more about this water ride and the Dinotopia area, I encourage you to look at the Paramount Park Kunming thread (https://www.themeparx.com/paramount-park-kunming/) because a very similar area is planned for that theme park.

    Swanscombe Peninsula in Kent has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for its grassland, scrub, wetlands, grazing marsh and saltmarsh habitat which is home to an array of wildlife. The marshlands close to the M35 are also home to a rare endangered species of jumping spider as well as marsh harriers, reed warblers and rare plants.
    PY Gerbeau, chief executive of London Resort Company Holdings, said: “The project will of course continue, and this is just another issue to address in the long history of this project.”

    He said the company had been surveying and monitoring the site since 2012 and was working closely with Natural England to identify the right ecological solutions to deliver the project. He added: “Sustainability is a green thread throughout the London Resort proposals and we’re very proud of that.

    I have said this all along. This has happened overseas. No theme park but they get the hotels and housing. My money is on this happening here.

    There is a proposal that 2000 construction workers could live on cruise ships on the opposite of the River Thames.

    London Resort bosses are considering plans to hire two vessels, which would be docked in the River Thames at Tilbury in Essex, to accommodate workers during the six-year build of the £2.5bn park on the Swanscombe Peninsula.
    It is proposed accommodation would be provided at market rates and would help "mitigate negative impacts on the local constrained accommodation market".

    Workers would then be ferried between the ships across the Thames to the construction site before and after shifts. But while it would provide "huge relief", resort bosses concede the "potentially unsightly nature" of the ships which would also reduce the knock-on local economic benefits due to "activity being contained on board".

    Mine was from PY Gerbeau and it said he thanks us for attending the consultation, like they said nothing we haven't already heard.

  7. It was talking about how the plans were accepted, nothing we haven’t already heard! It did give a link to the document though!

  8. I got an email from The London Resort because I was on the consultation - anyone else receive an email?

  9. What has Faithden bid for and what details have we got about the actual hotel?
