We are committed to making our online information accessible to all visitors and are striving to adhere to accessibility guidelines.
By using a content management system, we have enabled all departments of the council to maintain their own areas of the website. Once pages have been edited they are checked for accessibility, technical, plain english and other aspects including spelling and grammar, image sizes, page length and meta data.
If you have had any problems at all using our website for any reason, please contact us and let us know. We will then look into the problem and try to make the necessary changes.
