These pages and content are provided by Belstone Parish Council. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means that the site should remain clear, usable and easy to navigate when you:

- navigate the website using just a keyboard
- navigate the website using speech recognition software
- listen to the website using a screen reader
We’ve also made the website text as clear and direct as possible.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Belstone Parish Council is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:
Some of the documents in the Accounts records section are PDFs, some of which have been produced by scanning paper documents. These are not fully accessible to screen reader software and may be hard to read if zoomed in on or resized for small screens.
We’ve assessed the cost of fixing this issue with navigation and accessing information. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make another assessment at the end of the 2021/22 Financial Year.
It is our aim to ensure that any new documents of this nature are added in an accessible HTML format and that, if appropriate, the text content of any PDF document created by scanning a paper document is also included in accessible HTML format.
