Plans for the biggest European theme park resort project since the launch of Disneyland Paris have reached an important stage.
The London Resort is a hugely ambitious scheme to construct a park on 535 acres of land in the South East, reports Essex Live.
It will have rides based on BBC and ITV shows, plus Paramount films.
The company behind the £3.5billlion project has this month launched a public consultation to get the opinions of local residents.
The resort will eventually house two different theme parks - known as 'gates' - with the first set to open in 2024 and the second in 2029.
Construction will begin in 2021 on the Swancombe Peninsula, a few miles from the Dartford Crossing in Kent.
The park will be separated into separate themed lands, with 70 per cent of attractions under cover so the park can operate in all weathers.
According to recent images released by the London Resort, the areas will be the High Street, The Jungle, The Studio, The Isles, Starport, The Woods and The Kingdom.
The High Street section of the park will be situated near a central plaza, with a huge decorative arch into the park, and will boast a waterpark, restaurants, shops, a convention centre and a Raddison Blu hotel.
The other areas of the park are likely to be set aside for the park's different attractions.
With the public consultation underway the plans will soon be submitted for planning permission later this year - despite the coronavirus crisis.
The consultation will seek to get the opinions of nearby residents and businesses, as well as stakeholders in the project.
By this month, London Resort will have produced 300 pages of information scoping the environmental impact of the park - which aims to achieve a Net Zero carbon emissions goal.
Chief Executive of the project PY Gerbeau said: "The team have been immense, working incredibly hard during these awful times.
"I joined just under a year ago and we are always being asked to hurry up.
"Well, I am happy to tell you we have made strong progress and these reports are hugely important.
"This is a significant step in transforming an amazing and ambitious dream into reality.
“We obviously can’t hold a public consultation in the normal way – but we will make sure we reach out to local residents and businesses as well as the wider community and stakeholders.
"We are talking to Government about how we will be using digital technology, websites, video conferences and online Question and Answer Sessions."
