LETTER: High street is ‘a nightmare’

I would like to endorse the comments about Shoreham High Street made by Dennis Robins (page 3, Shoreham Herald, February 2).

For a wheelchair user, the journey along the north side of the High Street is a nightmare. Not only are many of the pavements broken, cracked or uneven, there is a significant list towards the road in several places. It begins to feel like subsidence.

I have in the past complained to the council, particularly about the severely broken tactile paving at the Ropetackle end of the High Street made more dangerous because the building on the east corner is far too close to the road.

I am sure current building control would never have agreed that boundary line.

Further delays for repairs to the High Street pavements will ensure that it will continue to be a potential disaster area for everybody whether on foot or wheels.

With all it has to offer, Shoreham is a great place to live in. It is a shame to neglect such basic needs.
