Dickens World wants to re-invent itself as an adventure golf park and is in the process of placing planning permission for for this upgrade.
Unfortunately Dickens World, 62 million pound project that didn’t attracts the amount of customers and clients expect it closed its doors in October 2016. There are now plans in place to resurrect the site gymnastics center and an adventure golf course.
If the plans are approved by Medway Council then in all likelihood this is gangs cray 52 new jobs and this is some welcome relief to locals as the building has stood still and empty since 2016.
Try to UK real estate has made these applications and it stated that the proposed application would introduce uses for the Viking Dickens world I’m would be appropriate for the local area given its previous life.
Given the condition and current design it lends itself further to a ledger Run Travel activity centre and follows on from the theme of dickens world.
Furthermore there is a plan for a dinosaur park called Mighty claws. There are already centres in Colchester and bulbous the spokesman said is intended the Chatham based business will be focused around the Victorian era.
Attraction will have a dinosaur exhibition, to indoor golf courses, fine dining, and indoor bookable private party areas.
A company called Gymfinity will be spearheading the gymnastic facilities and the idea is that they’ll be classes for children up to the age of 16. The idea is there will be a ninja theme.
The current Nandos restaurant was extremely popular and customers had to queue for considerable periods of time so it’s been requested that they can extend their facilities.
Medway Council wants you to make a decision anytime and will keep you updated because there is a condition 50 of the Dickens World that makes it un-useable for any other purpose.
Otherwise that wouldn’t have been no need for planning permission.
It’s quite an interesting proposition for the locals that finally this development that promised so much might have an alternative use. It’s ever such a shame to see such a brilliant theme disappear like this. We hold our fingers crossed that something positive can come from the significant investment in infrastructure seen in Chatham.
