A director of the developers of London Paramount entertainment resort has unexpectedly left the project.
Fenlon Dunphy was one of the faces of the plans to build a £3.2 billion tourist attraction on the Swanscombe Peninsula between Gravesend and Dartford.
The former chief executive of a listed Russian chemical firm was one of the leading figures in the initial public consultations about the resort due to open in 2021.
He was expected to feature again in a new round of exhibitions on the park showing the latest changes to its masterplan, which are expected to show adjustments to the way traffic will enter the site.
The new consultation, likely to take place early next year, will be the fifth stage of community events run by the resort’s developers, who blamed the delay on the lengthy planning process for the resort, known as a development consent order.
Although he has left the park’s developer London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH), Mr Dunphy remains a director at three companies run by Kuwaiti European Holdings.
The Middle Eastern firm, owned by Ebbsfleet United Football Club chairman Dr Abdullah Al-Humaidi, is the largest investor in the project, which is expected to attract 15 million tourists a year.by
