Paramount Pictures Kent Resort One Step Closer
Posted on: 13/01/2015

This week has been an exciting one for London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH) as the schemes developer has managed to sign a deal to secure their desired site.

The company is to buy 388 acres at Swanscombe Peninsula, currently owned by Lafarge Tarmac (the UK’s largest cement plant), and transform it into the London Paramount Entertainment Resort. Ray Hole Architects and FaulknerBrowns Architects have already been involved in the initial planning of the £2 billion leisure resort in Kent, releasing images to the public for a glimpse of its anticipated appearance.

The next two weeks will see a series of public consultations in Dartford and Gravesham at which concerned members of the public can voice opinions and ask questions about the proposals. The scheme, once fully constructed in 2020, will boast a theme park, Water Park, entertainment street, staff training academy and a large hotel of around 5,000 rooms (with LRCH hoping to someday rival Disney Land Paris).

The work required to transform the former cement works site is expected to take up to five years, creating over 27,000 jobs and countless exciting opportunities for contractors, consultancies and architects.
