Kent Online have reported
that local businesses are sceptical about the timeframe for the submission of the London Paramount planning application.
Should the project get the go ahead, a number of businesses would need to be relocated to make way for the Resort, however representatives of those businesses affected have said that they've not had any meaningful discussions since mid-2016.
It is a little concerning that there seems to be a lack of recent consultation with some of the parties which will be biggest hit by the construction of the Resort. Negotiating the relocation and compensation for these companies will be a big task and if an agreement can't be reached could prove to be a significant stumbling block for the project. We can only hop that the recent change in leadership for the Paramount project will mean that consultations with local businesses can get underway again otherwise I fear there could be further delays to the project.
