London Resort DCO application submitted to the national Planning Inspectorate

The highly anticipated London Resort theme park, which will be located on the Swanscombe Peninsula in Dartford, Kent, has submitted their application for a Development Consent Order (DCO). The application was accepted for examination by the Planning Inspectorate. Volterra supported the application by providing several impact assessments relating to socio-economics and health. If approved, the theme park is expected to generate £50 billion for the UK economy in its first 25 years of operation, including the creation of over 17,000 direct jobs by 2038. The scale of a leisure project of this type is unprecedented in the UK, and the subsequent benefits are expected to be significant, both locally and nationally.
