THE ‘BOSHAM pong’ could be a thing of the past as work starts on a new 120m sea wall.
Chichester Harbour Conservancy announced the creation of the wall, skirting the Trippett path that follows the south-east Bosham shoreline.
A spokeswoman for the conservancy said: “The project has been over four years in the making, with the local community working alongside a number of public bodies to achieve the improvements.”
She said the area was currently lined with wire cages full of rocks that trapped seaweed and harbour detritus that rotted, causing the ‘infamous Bosham pong’.
Construction is set to start on Monday (July 14). Many organisations are involved in the project, including the Bosham Association and the parish council.
