Technical information about this websites accessibility

Bognor Regis Town Council is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

This website is currently partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non- compliances listed below:

There may be pages with read more / click here links. See WCAG 2.4

Success Criterion 4.4 (Link Purpose (In Context)).

There may be some pages where there are stray end tags. See WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.1 (Parsing).


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

Some images on the website pages may not have a text alternative, so the information on them isnt available to people using a screen reader. See WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).

We plan to add text alternatives for all images by September 2020. When we publish new content, we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.
