Accessibility

Fingal County Council recognises and values the provision of information on this website in a format which is accessible to all, regardless of ability or disability.

The site has been designed to provide a consistent navigation methodology throughout the site and strives to allow for plenty white space, resulting in a clean and modern user experience.

The site has been designed to reach AA (WCAG WAI Level 2) accessibility levels. However work on ancillary sites and PDF documents on the site are required before this becomes a reality.

The site is developed using valid XHTML and cascading style sheets (CSS) which are screen reader friendly and make the site accessible to more of our citizens. Our site content is separated from presentational elements, which makes it available to any visitors that use technologies such as a screen reader or text only browser. 

Accessible web sites prioritise clear content, structure and ease of navigation over visual aspects of design, however they also need not be visually unattractive, nor are they prevented from using the latest web technologies, provided that all information is still accessible to users. 

You may find that on your screen the text is either too large or too small for your personal needs. Using the text size options , you can set a smaller or larger standard font size, and this will be applied to all pages you visit on our website. There is also the option to use high contract version of the site.

You may use your browser settings to change the text size for all the web sites that you visit.
