Accessibility

We aim to make this website accessible to all. We have attempted to ensure that all pages conform to WCAG 2.0 Level AA.

Third party sites

We have overall control of the www.northamptonshire.gov.uk website but we work with different suppliers and partners who supply third party elements of our site, for example:

  • Library catalogue
  • Jobs portal
  • Pay parking fines
  • School admissions

We work with these partners to try to meet WAI Level AA standard but this is an ongoing programme of work.

Interactive mapping

Due to its graphical nature, our interactive mapping application cannot currently be presented in a fully accessible format. If you would like assistance with this, please email: webteam@northamptonshire.gov.uk
