No more salt for Welwyn Hatfield paths
TOWN centres will not be cleared of any more snow as Welwyn Hatfield Council no longer has access to salt.
Hertfordshire County Council has tightened its supplies and can no longer provide the borough council with salt from its stocks.
A Welwyn Hatfield Council spokeswoman said: “The snowfall in Welwyn Hatfield today (Wednesday) has followed widespread snow throughout the country.
“As a consequence Hertfordshire County Council is no longer in a position to provide us with salt, because it is expected that main salt stocks will fall under Government control imminently.
“We only have a very limited supply of salt, which is for the clearance of our priority areas, including sheltered accommodation, as defined in our snow plan.

“We will continue to salt our priority areas, but it will not be possible to do any significant, additional salting of town centre areas.
“Roads and pavements remain the responsibility of Hertfordshire County Council.”
