Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Millom Without 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.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to exemptions listed below.
Some of our PDF documents are inaccessible to screen readers
We’ve assessed the cost of fixing this issue. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will continue to make assessments as an on-going process and the continued use of PDF documents in the website will be considered.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are used to explain our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on Council policy; these are also available as 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.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
Accessibility of the website is an ongoing process. We are training all website contributors to ensure their content is accessible.
