Accessibility Statement

We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so aim to adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.

Whilst Devizes Town Council strives to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.

Because of our reliance of third-party platforms for some web functionality, some parts of the website may not meet the accessibility criteria. These systems might be for online forms, maps, online payments , content management systems, plugins and extensions.

We are also reliant on non-HTML-based web content such as PDF files. We are investigating mechanisms for making PDF documents more accessible.

Accessibility features of this website

  • The page layout and colour scheme are implemented using cascading style sheets (CSS) and can be over-ridden by the user.
  • Text can be enlarged or reduced to suit your preferences (see above).
  • Headings & Subheading elements are used to make it easy to read the pages
  • Tables may only used for tabular data (that is, they are not used for layout purposes, except where this is unavoidable). We strive to present complex data in PDF format.
