Compliance with website accessibility regulations for Norfolk ALC provided council websites

New regulations have come into force which mean that, from next year, our websites will need to meet certain accessibility standards. The snappily named Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No.2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 came into force on 23 September and aim to ensure public sector websites and mobile apps are accessible to all, including those with disabilities.

Norfolk ALC have been working closely with our partner, Broadland Digital, to ensure that parish council sites meet the new regulations. Over the next few days, a new design is being introduced . Once this has been installed, please contact Helen with any changes that you would like to your site and we will do our best to meet your needs. A new privacy policy will have been added to the site automatically. A new Cookie Policy has also been drafted, which some councils might want to modify. Each administrator will therefore be sent a copy of the Cookie Policy with instructions on how to upload to the site after the new design has been implemented. All this work will be done behind the scenes so that the sites remain uninterrupted and live.

The cost of this work will be met by Norfolk ALC.
