This accessibility statement applies to the Cardiff Local Development Plan website.

This website is run by Cardiff Council. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts using browser or device settings,
  • zoom in up to 400% without the text spilling off the screen,
  • navigate the website using a keyboard or speech recognition software, and
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver).

We have also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Enforcement procedure

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’). If you are not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Cardiff Council is committed to making its website 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 or Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.2 AA standard], due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.

Non-accessible content

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

  • Some PDF files are not fully accessible due to non-tagged content, missing a document title, missing primary language, missing alternative text, contain incorrect table headings and incorrect heading structures.

    While we work to improve the accessibility of our documents, if you encounter a problem accessing information you can request a document in an accessible format.

    When we publish new documents, we’ll make sure they meet accessibility standards.

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

PDFs and other documents

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 or would result in a disproportionate burden. For example, we do not plan to fix the Adopted development plan (January 2016) and related documents as these will be superseded by the replacement development plan.

What we are doing to improve accessibility

We provide support and training to those who administer the website, to ensure standards are retained when updating the website. We will review the site periodically.
