The contract for the extensive defensive works for Littlehampton Harbour, which has been taken by Messrs. Locke and Nesham, London, will be executed under a tender greatly below those sent in by our local contractors. The works will be on the west side of the harbour, and, therefore, in the parish of Climping, the river being the boundary between the parishes.
