Accessibility Statement

Measures to support accessibility

Boughton under Blean Parish Council strives to provide a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability. 


Conformance status

We aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0, Level AA), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make Web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly to everyone. Whilst Boughton under Blean Parish Council strive to adhere to the guidelines and standards for accessibility, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website and we are currently working to achieve this. Be aware that due to the dynamic nature of the website, minor issues may occasionally occur as it is updated regularly. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.

Boughton under Blean Parish Council website is hosted by  Wix is committed to facilitating the accessibility and usability of its websites for all people with disabilities.

Limitations on accessibility

Older documents created prior to December 2019 may have been made using non compliant PDF software. If you find that a document is not compliant, please let us know and we will do our best to provide a compliant version. It would be a disporportionate burden to go back and amend all historic documentation.


We welcome your feedback on the accessibility of this website. Please let us know if you encounter accessibility barriers or have any suggestions by contacting the Parish Clerk by telephone on 07740 706189 or email at  We try to respond to feedback within 7 days.
