Fenlon Dunphy, on behalf of London Paramount, said: "To receive such positive feedback at this stage in the design process is hugely encouraging and demonstrates the real enthusiasm people are showing.

"While a majority approve of the draft masterplan, emerging transport proposals and plans to protect the local ecology and environment we know there is much more to discuss in the next several months prior to the submission of our planning application."
