A landmark described as an eyesore by residents is set to go.

The gas holder in Harwood Road, Littlehampton, will be demolished by SGN in the coming years, a spokesperson confirmed.

It was built in 1967 and has been a landmark in the town ever since.

The SGN spokesperson said: “Our regulator Ofgem is funding the removal of our gasholders as we now store gas in pipes, which is much more cost effective.

“The gas holder in Harwood Road, Littlehampton, will be dismantled at some point in the future as part of our ongoing programme, however it’s not currently on our agenda so will remain for at least the next two to three years.”

They added that the gas holder has not been in use for several years and it will not affect jobs when the holder is finally dismantled.
