Enforcement procedure

Wiltshire Association of Local Councils is not subject to the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’). It is the aim of WALC to meet the same criteria as required by our member local councils which are subject to these accessibility regulations.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Wiltshire Association of Local Councils is committed to making its website accessible in accordance with the requirements set out Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018, although the legislation does not require that County Associations of Local Councils must adhere to these regulations.

This website framework is compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. Some content is partially compliant, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non accessible content

Some pages may contain attachments which are not currently compliant, such as:

  • Older PDF files
  • Content produced by third parties or using third party software.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

We will do all we can to identify content that is non-compliant.

Content that is not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

PDFs and other documents

Some documents and content on this website may be created by third parties or using third party software. Where this is the case we will endeavour, upon request, to obtain an accessible copy from the original source or to convey the information contained in the document in an accessible way.

Many of our older PDFs and Word documents do not meet accessibility standards – for example, they may not be structured so they are accessible to a screen reader. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role value).

This website was last tested upon its launch in April 2021. Tests were carried out by our website provider, Aubergine 262.
