LEGOLAND Windsor has submitted a hybrid planning application for 8 projects at the theme park and resort, including 4 new rides, a holiday village and a series of improvements to the entrance area and the car parks.
It is all part of a 10 year development plan at what is now the UK's most visited theme park, with over 2.1 million visitors a year, more than at any other Merlin Entertainments theme park in the UK (1.9 million at Alton Towers, 1.8 million at Thorpe Park and 1.6 million at Chessington).
London Resort Company Holdings Limited and Paramount Licensing Inc. have jointly agreed to discontinue the licence agreement for the proposed theme park resort in Kent that is set to open in 2022.
LRCH have said that this does not have any effect on the timing of the planned Development Consent Order (DCO) submission for the resort in November 2017, however there is speculation that that losing such a major partner could derail the project, whilst others believe it opens up possibilities for working with new organisations.
