    Great news; 2019 (and 2024, the current planned opening date) can't come soon enough, if you ask me!

    Yeah basically Keltbray would be coming in to get the groundwork side of things done then the contracts for a lot of the builds and other projects will be tendered out at a later date.

    I'd like to think of this as a positive move as people are being contacted to provide quotes for initial projects. Let's hope they're not wasting all these tradesman's time aye ;)

    Sorry to bump the thread, but London Resort has recently appointed a new director named Alan Crane in the role of Construction Consultant. Here's a SouthParks social media post about it:
    https://m.facebook.com/southparks/photos/a.10152110405478495/10156343196718495/?type=3&__xts__%5B0%5D=68.ARDTstupmjTxzpnVv-YsMAP1GZ8VSRCfx_EBDaBiUm7NQzBYUZRovB_zGIG9HwTR5POsfo4cy5JW7Gr_BivBgcufe20H01PWC6HWZTQA9yJ01fq9Ve8PHVM-g-Xm-lJRnNMYoMpakf893QsbZeHS9mEQRTUFwUTD_7Zu_18jAT7xAnBY0OlXQE1KiCpxAAJ6CsZFlGMcXXvRswckYf8f5FwZGUjaueCH-osvbDPwlUOr8mRqyKSFd4zTE3VW18J6uTfK-CeJ4eoyaED36L73n-BmXflzmCxECNCs36OKeRwwi-PkaEP_l5-R-MsmoT12sn50A6FnoNvuuGUc3xYp&__tn__=-R

    An interesting thing to take into account is that he was involved in Disneyland Paris. But this is a really promising sign, in my opinion; I reckon we'll see a planning permit later this year!
    P.S. I'll try and embed the social media post later.

    They can hire who they want, the fact most of the original Saudi investors walked out says this will not happen - the project failed in the original format and it's really difficult to gain investors after that's happened, especially when you're asking them to invest hundreds of millions.

    He was involved in Euro Disney/Disneyland Paris? Great news. We all know how successful that was at the start...

    Your point?

    And yeah, I echo what Lofty and CSLKennyNI have said, you can hire whoever but it doesn't mean it'll happen.

    Sorry, I was just trying to repeat what you said on the matter a few weeks ago.
    Couldn't have been put more simply.
    Matt's optimism is both heart warming and heart breaking at the same time.
