Disproportionate burden

Documents that are supplied to us by other organisations will not be edited to make them accessible.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

Many of our older PDF documents may not meet accessibility standards – for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. However, if there is a particular document you need converting (apart from documents supplied to us by other organisations), please let us know and we will consider your request. See Town Clerk details above.
Any new PDFs we publish will meet accessibility standards – however please see disproportionate burden above
