London Paramount agrees land purchase of Bamber Pit and Sports Ground in Swanscombe
London Paramount is pleased to announce that it has completed the purchase of the sites known as Bamber Pit and Sports Ground in Swanscombe in the latest move to bring forward the London Paramount Entertainment Resort Project in North Kent.
The former landfill site, Bamber Pit, comprises 8.96 acres (3.63 ha) and is located to the south of the North Kent Railway Line. The Sports Groundtotals 9.28 acres (3.76 ha) and is situated to the north of the railway line. This is the first outright land purchase by the London Paramount team, and follows the option agreement reached with Lafarge Tarmac in 2014 for the acquisition of their land on the Swanscombe Peninsula.
David Testa, on behalf of London Paramount, said:
“With this agreement in place, the vision for North Kent as the home of a nationally significant, multi-billion pound Entertainment Resort employing thousands of people is moving another step closer to becoming a reality. It further underlies our commitment to delivering the project and is welcome news as we continue to consult and engage with the local Dartford and Gravesham communities near the site and more widely with our interested parties.”
