The London Resort has been designated as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP). It was the first ‘Business or Commercial Project’ to be accepted as an NSIP by the UK Government under the Planning Act 2008. As such, we were required to make an application for a Development Consent Order (DCO) to obtain permission to construct and operate the Resort.

Following extensive consultation and technical assessments, our DCO application was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate on 31st December 2020 and was accepted for examination by the Inspectorate on 28th January 2021. To read more about our previous consultation activity and consultation materials, please visit our consultation hub.

The application form and accompanying documents, plans and maps, including the Environmental Statement and draft DCO, are now available to view on the Planning Inspectorate’s website. You can view an overview and description of the documents submitted as part of our application here.

The project is at the Pre-examination stage of the process. The period to register with the Planning Inspectorate to become an Interested Party closed on 31 March 2021. We would like to thank everyone who has registered. Relevant representations have been published on the Planning Inspectorate’s website and can be viewed here

We are now taking the time to review and consider all representations received before we move into the examination period.

All Interested Parties will be invited to attend a Preliminary Meeting, run and chaired by the inspectors appointed to examine the application, known as the Examining Authority, on behalf of the Planning Inspectorate.

During the examination process, the Examining Authority will seek input via written representation and public hearings. The Examining Authority will then make a recommendation to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, who will decide whether or not the Project will go ahead.

For more information on this process, you can view the video below, or visit the Inspectorate’s website here






The London Resort has run extensive consultation and engagement since the early stages of the Project. Feedback has helped to shape the development of our proposals. Our Statutory Consultation, which ran from 27th July 2020 – 21st September 2020, was our fifth stage of consultation. 

Our virtual consultation room remains open. Here you can read our banners, booklets and view a brief introduction from our Chief Executive PY Gerbeau.

All of our consultation materials for all stages of consultation are available to view on our dedicated consultation hub.
