Welcome to the new Parish Council Website – Launched 13 September 2023
This accessibility statement applies to https://www.stamfordbridge-pc.gov.uk/
This website is run by Stamford Bridge Parish Council. We want as many people as possible to be able to use the website. For example, this means that you should be able to:
- change colours, contrast levels and fonts
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- listen to most of the website using a screen reader
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Stamford Bridge 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.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Using a keyboard, it’s not possible to skip to the main content on a page and it’s not clear where on the page you’re focused.
We have assessed the cost of fixing the issues with navigation and believe that doing so now would be a be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations.
Links must have discernible text. Not all link names are accessible by a screen reader and descriptive enough to inform the user where that link will take them.
We will review all our pages and fix these links by 31 March 2021. When we publish new content we will ensure link text meets accessibility standards.
PDFs and other documents
Many of our older PDFs don’t meet accessibility standards. For example, they may not be marked up so that they are accessible to a screen reader.
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.
We will review documents published since 23 September 2018 by 30 June 2021. Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
Preparation of this accessibility statement
This statement was prepared on 22 December 2020.
We tested a sample of pages including: the homepage, each type of page template and pages including images, pdf documents and forms.
