The London Resort represents a unique opportunity to bring a major attraction and entertainment led regeneration scheme to the UK. It will have a global profile, attracting visitors from all over the world.
Our intention has always been to ensure that the London Resort works for local communities as well as our visitors. This will benefit local communities in the immediate vicinity and beyond. We have revised our business plan and carried out more detailed assessments. We have taken into account the impacts of infrastructure improvements and development in the area alongside our own socio-economic impacts. Our ongoing assessments will continue.

We are improving public access to the Peninsula by adding new walkways, along with an improved cycle and pedestrian network on the Swanscombe Peninsula, connecting to the adjacent residential areas of Greenhithe, Swanscombe and Northfleet. Our proposals also include improved routes for pedestrians and cyclists around the Tilbury site.
Accessibility and inclusivity
The London Resort is committed to creating a development that is accessible and inclusive, and an environment that everyone can enjoy confidently and independently, with choice and dignity. We will put people at the heart of our design, starting with the simple premise that inclusion is embedded in the design process by:
- Acknowledging diversity and difference
- Offering choice where a single design solution cannot accommodate all users
- Providing flexibility of use
- Providing environments that are convenient and enjoyable for everyone to use.
The London Resort team wants to consult with and involve local disabled people, in terms of our design and management. This will include local and national stakeholder groups, but we are also looking to establish an accessibility forum to help guide our design development and our operational policies.
