Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Kessingland 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.

Non accessible content

Some images, tablesor PDFs do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information.

We’ve assessed the cost of fixing other issues. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations.
