Accessibility Statement

Sandiacre Parish Council recognises the importance of providing a website that is accessible to all users. We are therefore committed to making our website accessible to everyone, including blind or partially sighted visitors who use screen readers.

We have implemented the following accessibility features to make it easier for people with disabilities to use our website:


The site has been designed for ease of use. All main pages can be accessed via the navigation bar at the top of every page.

Linking text has been written to make sense out of context to help visitors using screen readers.


The content on this website has been written to be clear and concise; readable on the screen using contrasting colours and useful or interesting to our visitors.

All font sizes are relative, enabling our visually impaired visitors to resize text through standard browser controls.


The content of this website is presented using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). If your browser or browsing device does not support CSS, the use of structured semantic mark-up ensures that each page is still readable and clearly structured. Alternatively, you may wish to import your own style sheet.


All images used on this website include 'alt' tags (text alternatives).

This allows visitors to see what the image is meant to convey even if they have chosen to prevent images from being displayed or if a screen reader is being used to read the page. Images have also been optimised for quick download times.

Accessibility of non-HTML documents (e.g. PDFs Word documents etc.)

Due to the high volume and complexity, it is not practical to make all existing non-HTML documents on our website fully accessible. However, our policy is to only upload fully accessible non-HTML documents to our website in future.

Accessibility Testing

The website has been tested using a range of accessibility tools, including the WAVE evaluation tool and Siteimprove Accessibility Checker. All pages are re-tested whenever updates are applied and we continue to look for improvements that will make the website fully accessible to everyone.


If you experience any problems with our pages, please contact us and we will try to provide you with the information you need.

Please let us know which page (including the page address/URL) you experienced problems with, and if you have any suggestions for how we could improve this page.

Please e-mail the Parish Clerk:
