The company behind the proposed Paramount Park development in Swanscombe is holding a series of public consultation events this month.

London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH) is holding the meetings which make up the first stage of a year-long consultation process.

The government has agreed for the project to be considered under special planning regulations and will submit a planning application next year.

Fenlon Dunphy, a spokesman for LRCH, said: "We are looking forward to meeting the local community and ensuring that they are involved in every stage of the year-long consultation process.

"We think it is important that we consider the most appropriate and accessible way for people to be involved in our proposals for the London Paramount Entertainment Resort.

"We hope that everyone will fully embrace the opportunity to take part in the first stage of public exhibitions, which are specifically designed to establish the preferred communication and consultation methods of the local community and interested parties."

The public exhibitions will be held at: Ebbsfleet Academy in Southfleet Road, Swanscombe on Thursday, July 10 from 2pm to 8pm.

Eastgate North Kent Community Church, 141 Springhead Parkway, Gravesend on Friday, July 11 from 11am to 2pm.
