We aim to make our site easily viewed by and accessible to everyone, regardless of technology (browser or computer equipment), or ability.
We continually make improvements to the accessibility and usability of this site, based on available standards and guidelines, as well as feedback from our residents and website visitors.
This website meets priority 1(A) of the world wide web consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (WCAG), and we work to ensure that it meets priority 2 (AA) where possible.
We are currently assessing how this website meets the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0, though we still intend to work towards the AA standard of accessibility.
In the coding of the site, we strive to adhere to valid XHTML and CSS, so that the site displays correctly in current browsers, and any future browsers will also display it correctly.
Due to the dynamic nature of this website, with content being updated and added daily, it is not always possible to guarantee that all areas of the website are at the same level of overall accessibility.
We use standard templates and style guidelines in order to strive to the highest possible accessibility. In addition, the overall site accessibility is reviewed regularly.
