What happens after consultation
By taking part in our consultation, your responses have helped us shape the scheme. We have analysed and considered all feedback received during the consultation period and have had careful regard to what people told us, and have taken this into account when making further refinements to our proposals.
We have set out a summary of responses and described how our proposals have been informed and influenced by them in our Consultation Report which forms part of our DCO application. Our DCO application was accepted for examination by PINs – on behalf of the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government – on 28 January 2021.
There will now be a formal review process, during which time the Planning Inspectorate will seek input via written representation and public hearings during 2021. PINS will then make a recommendation to the Secretary of State, who will decide whether or not the Project will go ahead. Provided it is granted, works will start in 2022, with a view to the London Resort opening in 2024.

London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH) is proposing to develop a world-class, sustainable, next generation entertainment resort known as the ‘London Resort’, on the banks of the River Thames.

The London Resort will be principally based on the Swanscombe Peninsula in North Kent, set over approximately 465 hectares including a newly dedicated access road to the A2 and easy access from Ebbsfleet International station. Transport facilities will be provided on the north side of the river, set over approximately 29.5 hectares of land, on land immediately to the east of the port of Tilbury, with a transport access corridor around the A1089.
The London Resort has been designated as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP). It was the first ‘Business or Commercial Project’ to be accepted as an NSIP by the UK Government under the Planning Act 2008. As such, we needed to make an application for a Development Consent Order (DCO) to obtain permission to construct and operate the Project.
Consultation is an essential part of the DCO application process. We have always been committed to ensuring that the London Resort works for local communities as well as our visitors.
We held four stages of consultation over 2014 and 2015, to get early feedback on our emerging proposals. We have worked hard to refine and improve our proposals, taking into account all the feedback we have received, and changes to the area.
Statutory Consultation has now ended. We asked for your feedback on our evolved Masterplan, our transport strategy, our approach to sustainability and to minimising the adverse impacts of the scheme.
Your feedback is important to us, as it helped us shape our proposals ahead of submitting our DCO application to obtain permission to construct and operate the Project on 31st December 2020.
