  1. A nationally-important wildlife site is under threat – we need your help to save Swanscombe Marshes!

    It is vital that Swanscombe Marshes and the wildlife that calls this amazing site home are protected from the proposed London Resort theme park. We need your help to secure the future of this haven for wildlife.

    Please sign our petition and help Save Swanscombe Marshes

    Why is this important?

    There are now nearly 9000 signatures this is an arrival from a website I found, search up he London resort petition and you’ll find it: The Swanscombe Peninsula is home to a remarkable mix of habitat of high value to wildlife – these include grasslands, coastal habitats, brownfield features, scrub and intricate wetlands.

    Known as Swanscombe Marshes, this urban wilderness is home to thousands of species, including over 250 invertebrate species which are rare or under threat. As well as abundant bees, butterflies and beetles, Swanscombe Marshes is one of just two places in the UK where you can find the Critically Endangered Distinguished jumping spider (Attulus distinguendus). It is home to Nightingales, Cuckoos, Marsh harriers and a thriving population of Common lizards, thanks to its array of rich habitats.

    Swanscombe Marshes is not just important for wildlife. The site has been enjoyed by local people for years for walking, bird watching, angling and escaping the hustle and bustle of North Kent.

    But all of this is now threatened by the proposed London Resort theme park. Hyped as the ‘UK’s Disneyland’, much of the unique habitat of Swanscombe Marshes would be destroyed and concreted. The wildlife riches of the site simply will not survive this development. At a time when the value of wildlife and open spaces is being appreciated more than ever and amid a biodiversity crisis, we urge the Secretary of State to reject this unnecessary and ill thought out application.

    Please sign our petition to save this unique site, let’s save Swanscombe Marshes!

  2. Aardman Animations was in the project, I’d love to see them back what a game changer.

    Both Dartford and Gravesham councils have raised serious concerns regarding the "lack of detail" and the proposed timescales for the project. These initial observations were submitted in a series of letters sent to the Secretary of State and published as part of its scoping opinion last month.

    Dartford council noted the scoping report represented an "initial stage" and said their comments had been provided to assist the developers on "some of the more localised issues".
    Dan Bramwell of the Peninsula Management Group – which represents over 100 businesses and landowners on the Swanscombe Peninsula – said they were yet to hear directly from the theme park bosses. He said: "As far as all the parties on the industrial estates are concerned, there has been very little progress made in addressing the future needs of the businesses or negotiating with landowners.

    "It is now well over two years since there was last any meaningful dialogue between London Resort and Peninsula Management Group, contrary to what the developer says."

  4. Sadly there are now 3800 annoying signatures to stop the resort in Dartford, although if it did happen I would think that they would relocate.

  5. I just went over the response of the Inspectorate Council to the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) published by London Resort. It seems like they gave lengthy feedback, and indicated that a lot of things were lacking in the EIA! Is that worrisome or normal?

  6. The council was made aware of the rare spiders years ago and there are plans to relocate as many as they can, so I don’t think this petition will go very far.

  7. Major set back for the resort! There is a petition and once it gets to 3000 signatures it will be shown to the Kent council. This is because of rare species of moth and bugs living there

  8. I asked about the Universal Studios licensing rumours in the consultation and he didn’t confirm them but he also didn’t deny them

  9. The Top Gear ride looks like it’s multiple attractions in one. If you look at the concept art the log flume splashdown is obviously in the centre but if you look to the right you can see what looks like a motorbike themed coaster

    I asked questions about many things (creative jobs, concept art, etc) and I have lots of information!

    Next generation rides and technology ahead of other theme parks
    A relatively small indoor water park
    10,000 space car park
    A people mover
    A visitor centre
    At peak 75000 visitors a day at gate 2’s opening
    A clean sustainable park
    PY Gerbeau is said to have transformed management
    Imagineering jobs are available
    Staff housing for the majority of the staff
    Acting and live performances seen in universal
    Green areas around the park for guests to unwind
    Gate 2 will me more indoor
    A large check in building to avoid claustrophobic feelings
    A large e-sports centre with interactive game that sounds like an arcade
    A staff training centre
    There will be a dual carriage way for access into the park without using local roads

    I hope this is helpful but I have also found out that main ride information is far away as the parks are not at that stage yet.
