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).

  1. Information about this website’s accessibility

Clackmannanshire Council is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance status

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

  1. Non-accessible content

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

  • Most older PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software, for example they may fail under

WCAG 2.1 Success Criterion 2.4.4: Link Purpose (In Context) or

WCAG 2.1 Success Criterion 2.4.9: Link Purpose (Link Only)

We plan to address this for all new PDFs. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of PDFs meets accessibility standards. To address existing PDFs would fall under the Disproportionate Burden Exemption.

  • Colour Contrast Accessibility Validator

This fails WCAG 2.1 Success Criterion 1.4.3:  Test for Colour Contrast

As we have a number of web pages that may fail this criterion to do this immediately would fall under the Disproportionate Burden Exemption. We plan to address this by 31st December 2021.

  1. What we’re doing to improve accessibility

Clackmannanshire Council are fully committed to addressing issues with our website going forward. Where capacity is available we will endeavour to regular checks and balances to ensure that our website meets WCAG 2.1 success criteria.
