Site Accessibility

Chorley Borough Council is committed to providing accessible information, without restriction or prejudice towards ability or disability.  In order to meet this commitment, this website has been designed following a set of accessibility guidelines and web standards.

This website continually attempts to provide WCAG Double-A accessibility, according to the W3C's accessibility guidelines and standards.  Whilst this can be a difficult task across a large website, we are committed to ensuring that all measures are taken to maintain this level.


Accessible, in terms of a website, means all users are able to navigate and retrieve information from anywhere in the site, whilst disregarding the notion of a standard user, a standard set of abilities or a standard device for accessing the site.  In this way, no user should be excluded from the website, despite their choice of method for accessing the web or their personal abilities and disabilities.
