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

Shepshed Town 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 is partially 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 that is not accessible is outlined below.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

We may have some scanned PDF documents on our website e.g. our Annual Governance and Accountability Returns (AGARs). Scanned PDF documents do not comply with the Accessibility Regulations 2018 but these documents can be provided in an alternative format or on alternative media, on request.

Content that is not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

3rd party products

We use Google maps. These may not be accessible to some people. We will always provide the information by alternative means on request
Social media share bars may not meet the required colour contrast levels

We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.

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.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared on 17th September 2020.

We used the methodology described in "Website Accessibility Requirements" produced by NALC. This website was tested using the Microsoft Accessibility Insights for Web tool recommend in that publication.

This website was last tested on 16th September 2020. The test was carried out by 2commune. We used this approach to decide on a sample of pages to test with static content, links and pictures.
