    Land sold to Paramount developer.

    Lafarge Tarmac has signed a deal to sell land needed for a planned new £2bn theme park in Kent. The 388 acre site at Swanscombe Peninsula was formerly the largest cement plant in the UK which closed in 1993.

  2. Developers hope to submit a planning application for the £2 billion entertainment resort at the Swanscombe Peninsula in the next few months.
    And the team behind the project say they have been boosted by feedback after releasing results from a series of 12 consultations, attended by more than 2,000 people.

    Of the 786 feedback forms received, 82% of respondents say they approve the draft masterplan while 63% support proposed transport schemes.

  3. Agreed, the same team who convinced Disney to build Euro Disney in Paris by suggesting the weather was warm and sunny.

    These international projects need all year footfall, accessibility, and good weather. Kent fails on all these. Perhaps if common-sense prevailed they would join forces with Paramount Park Murcia and build it there. A dedicated airport ( when it opens) cheap flights £80 return ( cheaper than driving and parking in Kent).

    They have all the plans and licenses and are ready to go but no funds yet . Seems obvious but doubt it will happen.

  4. Why Kent? It must be one of the most inaccessible areas of UK if you live north or west of M25!

  5. Because all those TV series you listed are internationally known... Sherlock and Doctor Who are very popular series in the US.

  6. That's great but the business model is to attract international visitors who will have no idea about Dr Who, Top Gear and or the BBC version of Sherlock set in the modern day. They would not have the top Dutch, German or French TV program converted into an attraction so why these?

  7. Popular BBC shows such as Doctor Who, Sherlock and Top Gear could be turned into theme-park attractions as part of a development deal involving the Hollywood studio behind Mission Impossible and Star Trek.

    BBC Worldwide, the commercial arm of the BBC, has struck a deal with a Kuwait-backed property developer to allow a range of its programmes and characters to be “brought to life” at a new £2bn theme park and holiday resort to be built by the Thames estuary in north Kent, in partnership with Paramount Pictures.
