Westfield Parish Council Accessibility Statement

The Westfield Parish Council website is run by Westfield Parish Council. We aim to provide a website accessible for everyone and have reviewed our website against the relevant accessibility standards.

The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations 2018 aim to ensure reasonable adjustments to websites are made, so they are accessible by people with various disabilities.

To meet the new public sector requirement to be more accessible, the Westfield Parish Council website needs to comply with the international WCAG 2.1AA accessibility standard.

If you need information on this website in a different format like accessible PDF, large print, easy read, audio recording for example, please use the details below to request:

We will consider your request and get back to you within 15 working days.

The Westfield Parish Council website is designed by Word Press. We know that some parts of this website are not fully accessible:

  • You cannot modify the line height or spacing of text
  • Most older PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software
  • You cannot skip to the main content when using a screen reader

However, the cost of ensuring all Assistive technologies can be used to access this website is considered by the Council as a disproportionate burden but the Council will assist with supplying information in other formats if possible and on request.

Limitations and alternatives

Despite our best efforts to ensure accessibility, there may be some limitations:

  • Some older PDF’s may not comply with the regulations
