Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Canterbury City Council is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations 2018 No.952.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.
Some documents on this website are not accessible. They have issues such as missing text alternatives and missing document structure.
We have assessed the time and cost of making them accessible and believe updating these would represent a disproportionate burden, considering the resources available to us, as they are infrequently used and are not essential to providing a service.
Accessible versions will be provided, if needed, and can be requested from the download page.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have forms published as PDF documents.
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 we publish will have an accessible format.
