Technical information about accessibility on this website

Crawley Borough Council is committed to making its websites accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance status

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

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

  1. Some content looks like headings but is not. This makes it difficult for screen reader users to navigate the page. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships). This will be fixed by 30 September 2023.
  2. Images on some pages do not always have suitable image descriptions. Users of assistive technologies may not have access to information conveyed in images. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (Non-text Content) and will be fixed by 30 September 2023.
  3. Some error messages in web forms are not clearly associated with form controls. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 3.3.3 Error Suggestion (Level AA) and will be fixed by 30 September 2023.
  4. Some tables do not have table row headers when needed. This means assistive technologies will not read the tables correctly. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships) and will be fixed by 31 August 2023.

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

Disproportionate burden

We aim to make this website accessible to everyone and have not identified any content that qualifies as a disproportionate burden.
