Reporting accessibility problems with this website
We're always looking to improve the accessibility of this website.n If you find any problems not listed on this page or think we're not meeting accessibility requirements, please contact:
The Parish Clerk on Telephone: 01327 264002 Email: email@example.com giving the page title and the nature of the problem.
Our Agendas, Minutes and Reports are exported in an archive format PDF/A-1a (ISO 19005-1) with tags and document structure information. This should assist you in finding what you need. A few PDF documents, particularly those with scanned signatures required by council regulation, do not have a useful structure that can be easily navigated.
If you experience a problem with accessibility with any of these documents, please let us know so that we can follow this up.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the 'accessibility regulations'). If you're not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).
Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Moreton Pinkney 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 the non-compliances listed below.
a) Navigation and accessing information
There is no mechanism to skip the repeated content in the page header (for example, a 'skip to main content' option), using blocking. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.1 (bypass blocks).
It is not always possible to change the device orientation from horizontal to vertical without making it more difficult to view the content. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.4 (orientation).
b) Interactive tools and transactions
Some of our interactive forms may be difficult to navigate using a keyboard. For example, because some form controls are missing a 'label' tag. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 (information and relationships).
c) Links to external resources
The A-Z of Services links to sites outside of the control of Preston Capes Parish Council.
