Damaged grass verges – Northaw Road West  ( Concerns raised again in October and December and passed on to WHC)
Concerns have been raised about the damage to the grass verges caused by parking.  Parking on the grass verges is an offence and Welwyn Hatfield Council have been informed.   Hertfordshire Highways have also been asked to repair the damage to the grass verges because of the risk to pedestrians from the pot holes caused by vehicle tyres.

Concerns have also been raised about parking opposite the church and village green by patrons of the Judges which has been reported to the Police.
