Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Homes in Sedgemoor is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:
Interactive tools and transactions
Some features of our website are built and hosted through third party software. In some cases, they are ‘skinned’ or styled to look like our website.
We have assessed the cost of fixing the issues with navigation and accessing information, and with interactive tools and transactions. We will make every reasonable effort to address accessibility issues in conjunction with our software suppliers, but any major changes may be a disproportionate burden within the definition of the accessibility regulations.
Third party tools featured on the Homes in Sedgemoor website include:
- Adelante Smartpay – a payments engine
- Texthelp Browsealoud – an accessibility tool
- Capita Open Access – a customer portal
- Google map – to show available garages

PDFs and other documents
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they are not essential to providing our services.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
Please see the accompanying Accessible documents at Homes in Sedgemoor for further details.

We will continue to assess externally sourced tools and improve upon internally developed systems to ensure that they meet accessibility requirements.
We will continue to assess the viability of addressing issues identified in the Disproportionate Burden section of this page.
