Technical information about this website's accessibility

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

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

Some PDF documents created after 23 September 2018 are not accessible. This fails WCGA 2.1 sucess criterion 1.1.1 (Non-text Content).
