2017 for London Paramount application

A planning application for the London Paramount entertainment resort is now proposed for submission in summer 2017.

The £2.3 billion attraction earmarked for the Swanscombe Peninsula between Gravesend and Dartford could feature a theatre, a cinema, music clubs, hotels, shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and up to 210,000sq m of indoor and outdoor space for events.

Plans were originally due for submission in summer 2015, but were pushed back a year until 2016. Steve Norris, chairman of London Resort Company Holdings, the company bringing forward the project, told Property Week the plans would now not be submitted until the second quarter of 2017.

“We do regular appraisals to make sure that when we’re entering pretty new territory, which is what London Paramount is, we’ve got everything right,” said Norris. “And as a result of that, we’ve adjusted our plan.”
