Our website uses content embedded from other websites. This may result in reduced accessibility when trying to access content directly using the keyboard or screen reader technology. If you come across a problem with this, please contact us so that we can help you where possible and try to fix the problem.
We may use tools like YouTube to show video. Some of the systems we use for things like taking payments, mapping, applying for jobs or looking up planning applications (to name just a few) are provided by third parties. While we always stress the importance of accessibility and usability, we will often rely on the suppliers of these systems to update their software. Similarly, we don’t have control over the external websites we link to.
