Reporting accessibility problems with this website
We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems that aren’t listed on this page or think we’re not meeting the requirements of the accessibility regulations, contact us using the contact details at the end of this statement.

This website is compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.

Non-accessible content
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

  • Images on some pages do not always have suitable image descriptions. Users of assistive technologies may not have access to information conveyed in images. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (Non-text Content).
  • Many documents are in less accessible formats, for example PDF.

PDFs and non-HTML documents

Many documents are not accessible in a number of ways including missing text alternatives and missing document structure.

Our aim is to make all documents hosted on the Bude-Stratton Town Council website accessible. If you require a document in an alternative format please contact us via the details below.

External links
This website links to third-party, external websites or services that may not be fully accessible.

Disproportionate burden
We believe that fixing the accessibility problems with the non accessible PDFs before October 2020 would be disproportionate to the cost involved and feel that the time and money in doing so can be used better elsewhere within Bude-Stratton. However if you do require an accessible PDF then please get in touch via the details below and we will be happy to assist you.

  • WCAG 2.1 compliance using a third-party automated service (reviewed regularly)

  • colour contrast checkers were used during the design phase and re-tested once launched
