The project, which was due to open by 2025, has encountered a number of problems since inception, largely due to its location on Kent’s Swanscombe Peninsula.

In a statement on the London Resort’s website today, it was announced that the theme park application had been withdrawn due to problems surrounding the Tilbury Ferry Terminal.

The company’s chief executive, PY Gerbeau, said: “In the best interests of the London Resort, we are withdrawing the current application as Tilbury has been classified as a free port which has resulted in changes being required to move the ferry terminal from Tilbury to Graue.

“We are working closely with Thurrock Council on this matter.”

Last year was part of the Swanscombe Peninsula designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) due to a number of rare species in the area including a tiny 1cm jumping spider.

This led to both BBC and ITV are withdrawing their interests from the amusement park.

Developers say Natural England’s decision to designate the area as an SSSI influenced the project.

Mr. Gerbeau continued: “The [Tilbury ferry terminal] along with Natural England’s decision to designate a contaminated brownfield site as an SSSI has impacted the project.

“In turn, we have acquired significant land holdings as part of our mitigation strategy, combined with our commitment to spend £150m on environmental improvements on the Peninsula.

“These changes are considered material and as such require withdrawal and resubmission.”

Mr. Gerbeau stressed that the developers plan to submit an application before the end of the year.

He added: “Make no mistake we are still 100 per cent committed to this amazing project and will resubmit before the end of 2022 and look forward to delivering a world class entertainment resort – Britain deserves better and we will.” realize. ”
