Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Shepton Beauchamp Parish 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.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Documents held on some of our pages are non-accessible (e.g. minutes from meetings) and we have assessed the cost of fixing the issues. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the definition of the accessibility regulations.
Content that is not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they are not essential to providing our services.
