The proposed London Resort theme park on the Swanscombe peninsular has announced they have been making progress since the public consultation.
The owners have now finished their application to the Planning Inspectorate which contains over 28,000 pages of reports assessments and analysis. Nothing like adding a bit of extra detail in which to hide away anything they don’t want to be seen.
The application has been accepted for examination by the Planning Inspectorate who will now take 12-18 months to process the wealth of information before reporting to the Secretary of State. Lots of late night reading for Mr P. Inspectorate then!
The owners are exploring ways of maximising local businesses in the supply chain
PY Gerbeau, CEO said “It’s taken an enormous amount of effort from everyone involved to get to where we are now. We have always said our ambition is to build much more than just a theme park”.
The park is projected to be one of the largest, single site employers in the UK. Good luck if you work there as you might need to set of early in the morning to avoid the expected congestion on North Kent’s already busy road network.
The owners are engaging with local schools, colleges and universities about the range of skills, experience and qualifications they will need at the London Resort. They have also set up an Employment and Skills Taskforce to ensure they have access to the right people with the best skills.
