I fear Dennis Plumb (letters, August 16) is living in cloud cuckoo land if he thinks West Sussex County Council (WSCC) will ever take responsibility for the appalling road surfaces in the county, let alone in Selsey.
My late father lived for nearly 20 years, during the 1960s and ’70s, in a small village near Horsham, and in the course of his work travelled extensively through the southern counties. He always maintained West Sussex had by far the worst roads in the entire south of England.
Nothing has changed. It would appear WSCC are working hard to maintain their standards set over 50 years ago!
