Plans to construct a $2bn Paramount theme park in north Kent have been delayed.

The park’s developer, London Resort Company Holdings has said it has delayed submitting its planning application until 2017 while consultations take place.

The resort, to be built on the Swanscombe Peninsula near Dartford, is planned to be twice the size of the Olympic Park and include 5,000 hotel rooms and a water park.

It was originally hoped that plans for the build would be submitted by 2016.

David Testa, from London Paramount, said: “We have decided that, given some of the changes we are making to the masterplan, we should hold a further round of public consultation on the updated information.

“This decision comes as part of our continued dialogue with the planning inspectorate and local authorities in Dartford, Gravesham and Kent and the Ebbsfleet Development Corporation.”

London Paramount says that the planned park will feature around 50 rides and attraction all based on films and TV programmes from its portfolio of properties.
