The land at Swanscombe Peninsula covers 388 acres and has been owned by Lafarge Tarmac for over 140 years. It used to be the UK's largest cement plant before it closed in 1993.
The executive director of LRCH, David Testa, said: "With this agreement in place, the vision for North Kent as the home of a nationally significant, multi-billion pound entertainment resort employing thousands of people is moving closer to becoming a reality.
"It further underlies our commitment to delivering the project and is welcome news as we continue to consult and engage with the local Dartford and Gravesham communities living near the site and more widely with our interested parties."
So far, two stages of public consultation have been held with another two likely to take place prior to a planning application being submitted later in 2015.
Twelve consultations have taken place to date and the resort’s developers say they are encouraged with feedback from these events, with 82% of respondents indicating that they approve of the draft masterplan for the park.
