London Resort theme park in Kent 'is on track'

The company behind Paramount Park - a proposed £3 billion theme park on the Swanscombe Peninsula in Kent has rejected claims that the project looks like it's 'dead in the water'.

The massive marshland site between Gravesend and Dartford looks much the same as it did when the plans were announced eight years ago - and the project seemed doomed when Paramount pulled out, only to return a few months later.

In that time, London Resort Holdings has issued artists impressions, bought up land and formed partnerships with Paramount, ITV and the BBC.

But a planning application has not been submitted and no work has been carried out on the 800-acre site.

In an interview at their London HQ, London Resort Holdings insisted Paramount Park was on course to open in four years time.

ITV Meridian spoke to the MP for Gravesham, Adam Holloway, and Andy Martin from London Resort Holdings.
