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

Text size

To adjust the size of the text on this website, go to View in your browser toolbar and select text size. A new menu will appear giving you the option of changing the text size.

This may not be possible with every browser but is an option for Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Netscape.

Adjust the zoom level

You can also use the percentage option in the bottom right hand corner of your screen to increase the way you view the site.

It is normally set to 100%. You can increase this by holding down the CTRL key and pressing the + sign, or decrease by holding down the CTRL key and pressing -.

There is also a small arrow to the right of the 100% which you can click on to increase or decrease the display.

Changing these settings will affect other websites you navigate to too.
