A Welham Green resident is concerned that someone could be hurt walking on the pavement along Dixons Hill Road following damage to the grass verge.

But Hertfordshire County Council’s Highways Department says a risk assessment has been carried out which concluded that the damage was “not requiring action at this time”.

The local resident had contacted the highways department after spotting the verge damage which has spread mud over the pavement.

He was not impressed with the response he received from the council, so he tweeted some pictures of the damage.
Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council spotted the tweet and asked who had told him the verge was not sufficiently damaged. The local resident then shared a letter he’d received from Hertfordshire Council Council’s Highways Department.
The local resident is now waiting to hear back from Hertfordshire Highways.
