Statement from Ebbsfleet Development Corporation following today’s theme park announcement from LRCH.

Paul Spooner, Interim Chief Executive of Ebbsfleet Development Corporation, said: “Over the last year we have worked closely with London Resort Company Holdings on its plans for a major theme park at Swanscombe Peninsula and we will continue to keep a close eye on developments.

“Plans for a major theme park have enormous potential benefits for the area and the significant momentum that has started in Ebbsfleet Garden City in the last 12 months will continue as 5,100 homes are built here by 2020/21. A new primary school opens in September, major employment space is being created in Northfleet and we progress with a vibrant, new city centre.”
