We are always working to make our website as accessible and usable as possible. That means you should be able to:
- change colours, contrast levels and fonts
- 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.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
We know some parts of this website aren't fully accessible:
- Most PDF, Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software

Selsey Town 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 includes the following:
- Images on some pages do not always have suitable image descriptions. Users of assistive technologies may not have access to information conveyed in images. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (Non-text Content).
- We have written guidance on how to create accessible documents for all members of staff and offer training sessions to ensure this work is carried out effectively.
Issues with PDFS and other documents
A recent audit was carried out by the Web team at Chichester District Council. They found that 136 PDF's were not accessible and would not meet accessibility standards - for example, they may not be marked up so they're accessible to a screen reader.
Chichester District Council believes all content should be accessible for everyone. We do not currently intend to claim disproportionate burden for any website content.
Selsey Town Council believes all content should be accessible for everyone. Documents published before September 2018 unless they are crucial to delivering a service, are not in scope of the accessibility regulations, but we intend to make all our content accessible.
This website was last tested on 19 October 2022 by the Web team at Chichester District Council.
We also use the accessibility checking service from Siteimprove to automatically test and report on accessibility issues with our website. We will update this page when issues are fixed.
