Compliance status

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 on the website should now flow for all users.

Interactive tools and transactions

There are currently no interactive tools of forms used on the site.
