We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
The AbilityNet website has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group and Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Town Council are committed to making this website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website framework is compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. Some content is partially compliant, due to the non-compliances listed below.
The content that is not accessible is outlined below.
Some pages may contain attachments which are not currently compliant, such as:
- Older PDF and Word files.
- Content produced by third parties or using third party software including PDFs provided by Locality on the Neighbourhood Plan Resources webpage.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
We will try to identify content that is non-compliant and make it accessible.
We don’t categorise any of the accessibility issues on www.bfsnp.org.uk as a disproportionate burden to fix within the meaning of the regulations with the exception of PDFs and other similar documents.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
Not all documents on this website are created by us. Some documents and content may be created by third parties or using third party software. Where this is the case we will endeavour, on request, to obtain an accessible copy from the original source or to convey the information contained in the document in an accessible way.
Many of our older PDFs and Word documents do not meet accessibility standards – for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role value).
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.
How we tested this website
Regular tests will be carried out by Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Neighbourhood Plan group members and our website provider, Aubergine 262.
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
We plan to improve accessibility on this website by addressing non-compliance issues (where possible) and by ensuring that all new content is accessible.
We will also regularly run reports to identify and address accessibility issues.
