Accessibility

Accessibility is about making our online information available to as many people as possible, whatever their needs.


Our approach to accessibility

We're constantly working to make our website as accessible and easy to use as possible.

We aim for our website to meet the World Wide Web Consortium Accessibility Guidelines (version 2) 'Double-A' standard. This is the recommended minimum standard for council websites.

Our site has been designed with this in mind.
