HOLLYWOOD actress Kate Winslet faces a battle to build a sea wall at her seaside home.

The Titanic star lives in The Witterings, West Sussex, and is a neighbour of Rolling Stones rock star Keith Richards.

Natural England and the Chichester Harbour Conservancy have advised Chichester District Council to refuse the Oscar winner’s planning application for a 560ft-long sea wall above the mean high tide line.

In a statement the Conservancy said it remained ‘unconvinced of the need for this sea defence.’

More time has been set aside by the planning authority for the application to be explored further.

No date has been set for a decision.
