This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
There’s no way to skip the repeated content in the page header (for example, a ‘skip to main content’ option). This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.1 (Bypass Blocks). We plan to fix this by the end of October 2020.
Some of our content is difficult to access using a keyboard. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.1.1 (Keyboard Accessible). We plan to fix this by the end of October 2020.
Auto rotating images cannot be stopped. The does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.2.2 (Pause, Stop, Hide). We plan to fix this by the end of October 2020.
Some of our images are missing appropriate alternate text. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 sucess criterion 1.1.1 (Non-text Content). We plan to fix this by the end of October 2020.
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on current Council business. We are currently working 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 our meeting documentation archive.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
We are currently working on templates to convert meeting documentation to HTML pages.
Keyboard navigation fixes are being implemented and are expected to be in place very soon.
