Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the exemptions listed below.

Non-accessible content

The aim of Hartshorne Parish Council is to make the content on this website as accessible as possible.

As such Hartshorne Parish Council do not:

·      Provide downloadable content for website users.

·      Use any trackers or cookies to gather any data on site visitors.

·      Keep images to minimum, but use then to provide some perspective on the Parish of Hartshorne.

We’ve assessed the cost of fixing the issues with navigation and accessing information, and with interactive tools and transactions. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations.

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before April 2020 if they’re not essential to providing our services.

The agenda’s and minutes published prior to February 2020 are in PDF format on our Previous Meetings page. We have left the pages available in the public interest, but are not intending to update them as their value deminishes with time.

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.

Hartshorne Parish Council will not use live video streams even though live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
