The Parish Council is required by the Public Sector Bodies (Website and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (“the regulations”) to have a website that is accessible for all users and to ensure reasonable adjustments are made to websites so they are accessible to people with various disabilities.

These include:

  • Impaired vision
  • Motor difficulties
  • Cognitive impairments or learning disabilities
  • Deafness or impaired hearing


This Parish Council is required under the above regulations to have Website Accessibility Statement. This statement has been compiled by a review of national guidelines and a sample of statements from similar bodies.

Website Accessibility Statement

Accessibility statement for Redlynch Parish Council website, www.redlynchparishcouncil.org

This website is owned by Redlynch Parish Council. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts using built-in browser settings
  • 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 like JAWS or NVDA

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

Get help

AbilityNet provides guidance on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Redlynch Parish Council is a small public body and whilst our intent is to adhere to the requirements of the regulations, our ability to respond may be limited by the availability of resources or if it involves a disproportionate financial burden.

How accessible is this website?

We know that some parts of this website are not fully accessible:

  • in some instances, you cannot skip to the main content when using a screen reader
  • Redlynch Parish Council has a specific business need to use PDF documents and as such they are extensively used. The older PDF documents may not be fully accessible to screen reader software.
  • we do not also provide an html version of documents, since creating html versions of each one would be an unnecessary burden.
  • we are aware there may be other accessibility issues.


We will continue to review the situation.
