Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Pinxton 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.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility
Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed
Non accessible content
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
• Scanned PDF documents which have handwritten comments

Non compliance with the accessibility regulations
Some PDF images don’t have a text alternative, so the information in
them isn’t available to people using a screen reader. This doesn’t meet
WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (Scanned image-text content).
We plan to rectify all scanned image PDFs by September 2020. When we
publish new content we’ll make sure our use of PDF scanned images
meets accessibility standards.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
Many of our Scanned image PDFs and Word documents don’t meet
accessibility standards – for example, they may not be structured so
they’re accessible to a screen reader. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1
success criterion 4.1.2
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility
