  • there’s a limit to how far you can magnify the map on our ‘Contact us’ page, which is provided by a third party (Google)

Enforcement procedure

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

Foxton 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 framework is compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. Some content is partially compliant, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non accessible content

Some pages may contain attachments which are not compliant, such as:

  • Older PDF files of documents published before 23rd September 2018 (for example the Foxton Conservation Appraisal March 2018, Foxton Landscape Character Assessment 2017, Landscape document 1991).
  • Content produced by third parties or using third party software.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

We will do all we can to identify content that is non-compliant.

Disproportionate burden

We have not identified any areas that we believe constitute a disproportionate burden.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations PDFs and other documents

Not all documents on this website are created by us. Some documents and content may be created by third parties or using third party software. Where this is the case we will endeavour, on request, to obtain an accessible copy from the original source or to convey the information contained in the document in an accessible way. There are limited documents predating September 2018 which do not meet current accessibility standards – for example, they may not be structured so they are accessible to a screen reader. 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 created by us will meet accessibility standards.

How we tested this website

This website was last tested in March 2022. Tests were carried out by both internal systems and our website provider, Aubergine.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We will provide staff training to ensure that all new content added meets accessibility criteria. We also run quarterly reports to identify and address accessibility issues. This statement was prepared on 3 March 2022. It was last updated on 3 March 2022.
