The Council is committed to ensuring all our visitors can access our website.
In accordance with central Government guidelines we will always aim achieve W3C Double-A Conformance to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines on this site.
This WAI is a set of guidelines developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and conformance to these guidelines will help make the Web more accessible to all users.
We are working hard to ensure that we maintain this standard as we would like like as many people as possible to be able to use our site.

The text size on this site is created in such a way that makes it resizable in any browser, should you find it too small to read. You also have the option to change fonts and colours through our site settings page.
Access keys are a navigation device enabling you to get around the main web site using your keyboard. They can be used to jump to different sections of content across the main site (not microsites).
