Technical information about this website’s accessibility


Bradford Peverell 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.


Compliance status


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.


This website respects and complies with all the rules and requirements in the Guidelines, but it may not implement all of the optional or recommended features.



Non-accessible content


Some images may not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information.
Some user-generated or uploaded content may not be compliant with style and formatting standards.



Navigation and accessing information


There’s no way to skip the repeated content in the page header (for example, a ‘skip to main content’ option).
Higher zoom levels may require sideways scrolling of the window.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations


Some of our older PDF documents may not comply with the standards, but any new ones we publish will meet accessibility standards.
