Accessibility Policy

Northwood Parish Council is committed to ensuring that its website is accessible to the widest possible audience, including disabled users.

Northwood Parish Council is in the process of ensuring its pages comply with the AA standard of the W3C recommended version of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

Northwood Parish Council acknowledges that this is an anticipatory and continuing work in progress and, in order to ensure no user is disadvantaged while this work is carried out, Northwood Parish Council intends to respond to all requests for assistance with accessibility by altering the necessary content as soon as possible within a reasonable timeframe.

Northwood Parish Council will make reasonable adjustments to ensure specific individual needs that cannot be addressed by mainstreamed adjustments are met.

Northwood Parish Council will adhere to the following principles in relation to its website:

  • The website shall provide appropriate channels of communication for feedback about accessibility.
  • The website shall meet level AA of the of the W3C recommended version of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
  • This policy will be reviewed annually to ensure that it continues to meet the needs of our users.

This policy was last reviewed and updated in December 2019.

The policy was reworded to take into account that the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) guidelines have been updated to version 2.1. We have reviewed  the policy in light of these changes. The primary focus for WCAG 2.1 is requirements for people with low vision and cognitive and learning disabilities as well as mobile accessibility.
