Website Accessibility Statement
Document dated 17th September 2020
Kingston Parish Council is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website, however, owing to the cost of the new legislation, WCAG-2, KPC are having to budget towards this new legislation.
Whilst Kingston Parish Council strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility. In the meantime should you experience any difficulty in accessing our website, please don’t hesitate to contact the Parish Clerk, Sue Green either by phone on 01548 810270 or e-mail email@example.com
As the COVID situation continues and support decreases hopefully you are all coping, if not please contact us for advice, we will point you to the right source of help.
if you need help please contact the parish clerk Sue Green, 810270 firstname.lastname@example.org who will be coordinating the response locally and liaising with SHDC & DCC. or Phone Vanessa Walker who has kindly agreed to be telephone co-ordinator 810497 email@example.com
