Most of our reports were created before September 2018 and is published in PDF format. Many of these documents are not formatted so they’re not accessible to a screen reader. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2. New reports are published as web pages where possible, and any documents we publish should meet accessibility standards.
We do not have any application forms on our website.
We are aware of the following issues with the links on our site:
We carry out regular checks of any newly broken links on our webpages and fix as soon as they are identified.
We will not fix broken links in documents published before September 2018, if it's not essential for a user to access a service.
When we publish new content, we'll make sure our links meet accessibility standards.
The interactive coast path map is not accessible. There is currently no accessible alternative and we will look into ways to provide a text alternative.
We do not hold public meetings therefore no papers and minutes are published.

This statement was prepared on 22 September 2020. It was last reviewed on 22 September 2020.
This website was last tested in June 2020. Tests have been carried out by Zoonou and continue to be made by internal testers as we progress with fixing problems identified.
The testers used a representative sample of the websites as defined by the Website Accessibility Conformance Evaluation Methodology (WCAG-EM).
Our test partner tested this site by manually reviewing representative URLs of all the templates as well as providing the results of a scan of the whole site to report issues that could be detected by automation.
We also use SiteMorse to run automated scans of broken links and missing alternative text for images issues on a regular basis.
