Newton Flotman Parish Council 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 listed below.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example meeting and policy documents. All documents published from September 2020 onwards will be accessible PDFs wherever possible and we will also gradually replace current operational documents.
