Steep Parish Council Accessibility Statement

Updated: March 2020.

General

Steep Parish Council strives to ensure that its services are accessible to people with disabilities. Steep Parish Council has invested a significant amount of resources to help ensure that its website is made easier to use and more accessible for people with disabilities, with the strong belief that every person has the right to live with dignity, equality, comfort and independence.

Accessibility on news.steep-pc.gov.uk

Steep Parish Council makes available the Equal Web Accessibility Widget that is powered by a dedicated accessibility server. The software allows Steep Parish Council to improve its compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1).

Enabling the Accessibility Menu

The news.steep-pc.gov.uk accessibility menu can be enabled by clicking the accessibility menu icon that appears on the corner of the page. After triggering the accessibility menu, please wait a moment for the accessibility menu to load in its entirety.

Disclaimer

Steep Parish Council continues its efforts to constantly improve the accessibility of its site and services in the belief that it is our collective moral obligation to allow seamless, accessible and unhindered use also for those of us with disabilities.

Despite our efforts to make all pages and content on news.steep-pc.gov.uk fully accessible, some content may not have yet been fully adapted to the strictest accessibility standards. This may be a result of not having found or identified the most appropriate technological solution.

Accessibility

As a council we are obliged to make the website accessible.  As a Parish Council we have made a concerted effort to make this site accessible.

Disproportionate burden

Having reviewed the site we believe we have made a good effort and continue to chip away at non-compliance. However, our conclusion is that making the site 100% accessible places a disproportionate cost on the council (equivalent to doubling the cost of the site) and we are therefore applying disproportionate burden on the remainder.
