Gosport Borough Council is committed to providing an accessible website to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability.

Web Accessibility Initiative

This website endeavours to conform to Double-A level of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1.

The guidelines describe how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities.

W3C Standards

This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standard compliant HTML/CSS code means future browsers should also display the website correctly.


Although Gosport Borough Council tries to follow the guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
