It appears that the entire Kent Online website is down, as I can't even access the homepage.

Further details of the proposals for London Resort have emerged today, including new plans to deliver the scheme in two phases, as well as revealing developers are close to agreements with six IP partners for phase 1.

SouthParks News have all the details.

3500 rooms. That's a lot of rooms. Admittedly the hotels have Thames Clipper access so they'll serve as useful hotels for staying in London but it's very optimistic still.

Really hoping this isn't just a scheme so they can get the infrastructure built and then turn around and say they can't build the park after all but they could build housing....

This does remind me of another major theme park resort in France that was plagued with problems and was far too ambitions. Does Disneyland Paris ring a bell?

3500 is indeed a lot, but they are saying they will be building the majority in the first phase, so they will likely build maybe 2500 to 3000 in the first phase, which I think is a somewhat sensible number, and if things are bad, then they can revise any further accommodation plans for the second phase. To be honest, doing the whole project in two separate phases is pretty sensible if you ask me.

I have to say, this latest update, whilst small, and with the development still way behind schedule, it has given me some renewed confidence that it can still happen.

Yes, same.

The amount of information in the update shows that LRCH have been very busy. Not that it is too relevant at the planning stage, but they should really keep the general public up to date a bit more to encourage consistent support for the project.

Most people have given up hope!

Does anyone know where this information was announced? The article doesn’t give any sources and the website/twitter for London resort hasn’t been updated

As stated in the article, the information is from a meeting held between the Government Planning Inspectorate and LRCH on 9th March of which details were made available to SouthParks last night. I'm afraid we can't link to the source as it's not a source that can be linked to. I can assure you that it is 100% genuine though.

6 IP’s.. wonder what they could be?

I like how they have split the hotel and park in Gate 2 for further developments after Gate 1 is finished. But 3550 rooms.. that’s insane!
