Website accessibility means that websites, tools, and technologies are designed and developed so that people of all abilities can use them.

It benefits people such as: those with a disability, those using a smart phone or tablet, older people with changing abilities due to ageing and users with a slow internet connection.

More specifically, it means all users are able to:

  • Perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with the web
  • Contribute to the web

The council is committed to making this website as accessible and usable as possible.

The website aims to meet the standards defined by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 issued by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).


Each page on the website aims to achieve the following:

  • Plain english - no jargon
  • Improved user experience - we've used analytical data to aid both the usability and readability of the site
  • Titles that clearly describe what a page is about
  • Responsiveness, which means that you can access the website on any device.

We have also ensured that the design of the website enhances the usability and readability of the website and that it will work on a variety of devices.

Documents and files

Due to the high volume and complexity of content on this website, it is not practical to make all existing PDF, word and excel documents fully accessible. However, our policy is to only upload fully accessible documents in future.
