The brains behind a planned £2bn theme park that aims to rival Disneyland Paris are heading out to woo the people of Kent.

Developers have been granted a licence from Paramount Pictures to use its name on a resort on the Swanscombe Peninsula, near Dartford.

Fun park chiefs hope their giant water park and Hollywood-inspired thrill centre will win public support.

London Resort Company Holdings hopes to submit a planning application in 2015.

Public exhibitions will be held at:

  • Ebbsfleet Academy, in Swanscombe, on 10 July
  • North Kent Community Church, in Gravesend, on 11 July
  • The British Legion, in Greenhithe, on 11 July
  • Swanscombe Leisure Centre, in Swanscombe, on 12 July
