Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Dunnington 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 website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the exemptions listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
Older PDFs and other documents
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents. By September 2020, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.
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 older Meeting Minutes and Agendas or Accounts documents.
We cannot guarantee the accessibility of third-party documents linked from this website although we will strive to acquire accessible versions where possible.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
