Herts County Council - Fix our Verges!


We're calling on Hertfordshire County Council to listen to residents and fix the verges. All across Welwyn Hatfield we're plagued by verges that are in ruin, left to deteriorate by the County Council. It's ridiculous that they make residents wait 2 weeks for a response before being told that it's not a priority and nothing will be done.

It's time Herts County Council listened to you, and to us. Together we can make them listen - we've put up with it long enough. Sign and share this petition.

I have found that despite telephoning the Council on numerous occasions, it is on several occasions their vehicles that are destroying the grass verges.

And when you ask them to move in order you can safely carry on with your own journey as I have to use a mobility scooter to get about town, another problem which nobody seems interested in is the state of the pathways with overgrown shrubbery and potholes especially near where I live in Stanborough close the Esso petrol garage has huge holes on the exit and nothing is done.

Re my area Local paper SENT PHOTOGRAPHER to photo the state of the Downs Verges, and published mail I sent to them. Got the new council tax charges today, saw what the County Council are getting. Why don’t you spend some of this money on rectifying this mess and the pot hole stuation

I think its a disgrace that the grass verges have been allowed to get this way, Hatfield used to be a lovely clean area to live in now its scruffy.

“unacceptable neglect " best describes hcc’s attitude to hatfield, parking, potholes and

mutilated verges may not be their top priority, but they should be dealt with, we deserve better !

I have a messed up verge outside my house causing a problem for the children who play on the green. Nothing has been done after repeated complaints. Just some fencing or posts would be nice…..

The verges on my walk to work and in Upperfield Road are awful. Something needs to be done and residents deserve to get more than a response ‘within 2 weeks’ and deserve more than a simple “it’s not a priority”
