Huntingdonshire District Council is constantly reviewing the accessibility of our websites to ensure that we continue to improve the ways in which our customers access our sites. Due to the way the guidelines and standards change there are always improvements to be made to the way in which we deliver our services, so we urge you to let us know if you find something that needs improvement. Please use the link below to contact our web team and try to give us as much detail as possible so we can try to resolve any problems you have encountered.
Ultimately our goal is to make our websites as accessible as possible by adhering as closely as we can to the various standards and guidelines laid out for local authorities, such as:
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) versions 1.0 and 2.0 as defined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
The “A” and “AA” standards for content accessibility.
Principles outlined by the Plain English Campaign (opens in new window) for writing simple, effective and accessible content.
W3C's XHTML and CSS standards.
Areas of reduced accessibility
We are aware of the following areas of our website that are not currently as accessible as we would like. Please note that these are systems that are bought in rather than developed in house.
Leisure Bookings - This system is currently not accessible to level AA. We are working with our suppler to improve the accessibility of this service.
