The long-delayed London Paramount theme park proposed for Kent is now planned to open in 2022, develops say.

The £3.5 billion project entered a consultation with local residents in 2015.

Approximately 27,000 jobs would be created by the attraction, London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH) say.

The park would feature approximately 50 rides and attractions within 872 acres of land.

Its planned opening date has been pushed back at least four times, with the years 2017, 2019, 2020 and 2021 previously being stated in marketing material.

The British government is widely expected to give the project the go-ahead, with the park’s investors now stating that construction could begin in 2019.
