Accessibility statement

We’re constantly working to make our website as accessible and usable as possible for every user.

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines

To help us make the Stockport Council (BETA) website a positive place for everyone, we've been using the W3C's guidelines on accessibility. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.

The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA) and as a local government authority we need to meet the Level AA rating.

We aim to achieve this through good practice and continual reviewing of our content and code, however if you do find any problems with using the website please let us know by emailing or phone 0161 474 2002.

Interactive mapping on our web pages and forms

Displaying information on our website using our interactive mapping service cannot always be presented in a fully accessible format.

We will always endeavour to make our mapping service as accessible as possible for all users but if you find using this service is preventing you from obtaining the information you need or completing a specific online form then please email

Getting further help

The BBC's MY Web My Way pages provide accessibility help, enabling computer users to make the most of the internet whatever their ability or disability.
