Reporting accessibility problems with this website
We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems not listed on this page or think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements, contact: the Parish Clerk – Kerry Harris, details above.
Enforcement procedure
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’). If you’re not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).
Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Thursford Parish Council is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
Compliance status
This website is not compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. The non-compliances and exemptions are listed below.
Non-accessible content
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).
We plan to add text alternatives for all images by October 2020. When we publish new content, we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.
Disproportionate burden
It would be a disproportionate burden on the Parish Council to pay a 3rd party company to undertake an accessibility check. as this would use a significant proportion of the annual council budget, particularly taking into account the unreliable internet signal in this rural community.
This situation will be kept under regular review.
Navigation and accessing information
There is no way to skip the repeated content in the page header (for example, a ‘skip to main content’ option).
It is not always possible to change the device orientation from horizontal to vertical without making it more difficult to view the content.
It is not possible for users to change text size without some of the content overlapping.
Interactive tools and transactions
There are currently no interactive tools of forms used on the site.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. For example, we do not plan to fix Parish Council minutes produced before 23rd September 2018.
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
We are in the process of checking and improving Heading Styles and Colour Contrasts. Page Titles and Picture Descriptions are being reviewed and improved to increase accessibility of the site.
This statement was prepared on 7th September 2020. It was last reviewed on 7th September 2020
