Accessibility Statement

We want everyone who visits the St. Asaph City Council website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding, going above and beyond the Public Sector Bodies Accessibility Regulations 2018. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling of the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader

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

Technical Information about this Website Accessibility

To help us make the St. Asaph City Council website a positive place for everyone, we’ve been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.

The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level A as the target for the St. Asaph City Council website.

How are we doing?

We’ve worked hard on the St. Asaph City Council website and believe we’ve achieved our goal of Level A accessibility. We monitor the website regularly to maintain this.
