Sandymoor Parish Council Website Accessibility Statement

Back home  /  Accessibility Statement

The 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.

This accessibility statement applies to www.sandymoorparishcouncil.gov.uk.

This website is run by Sandymoor Parish Council. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen.
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard.
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software.
  • Listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

Compliance status

This website is fully compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared in July 2022.

In preparing this accessibility statement, the site was put through various automated accessibility programs including WAVE, Google Lighthouse and SiteImprove, as well as a manual audit of images and link text. At the time that ThenMedia (our web development team) gave Sandymoor Parish Council access to the Content Management System, the site was WCAG 2.1 AA standard.

The statement was last reviewed in July 2022.

Feedback and contact information

If you need help accessing or information on this website in a different format please do not hesitate to contact the Parish Clerk.

We'll consider your request and get advice on a solution and back to you within 20 working days with any updates.

We're always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems that aren't listed on this page or think we're not meeting accessibility requirements, contact the Parish Clerk by emailing the issue to clerk@sandymoorparishcouncil.gov.uk.

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).

Not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

Many of our older PDFs don't meet accessibility standards – for example, they may not be structured so they're accessible to a screen reader. The accessibility regulations don't require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23rd September 2018 if they're not essential to providing Parish Council services. Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
