London Resort Company Holdings - option agreement relating to proposed London Paramount Entertainment Resort

Slaughter and May advised London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH) on the entry into a binding option agreement with Lafarge Tarmac Cement and Lime Limited for the purchase of 388 acres of land on Swanscombe Peninsula, Kent.

The land comprises the majority of land required for the proposed £2 billion London Paramount Entertainment Resort. In May 2014, the project became the first commercial venture to be designated by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government as a 'Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project' for which a development consent order (DCO) is required.

This matter forms part of Slaughter and May’s ongoing work in advising LRCH on the London Paramount project including real estate, construction, corporate, financing, environment and intellectual property. Bircham Dyson Bell is advising LRCH on the DCO application for the project.
