Amber Valley Borough 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 team behind this web site hope that whoever needs to use it, can do so easily. We have tried to make it as accessible as possible. 

Wherever possible, we would recommend upgrading your browser to the latest version number to take full advantage of the accessible design.

We are continually making improvements to our website and hope to provide further resources on this page to aim for the highest accessibility standards.

Government standards

The government requires that all public sector websites, whether for central or local government, should meet the W3C's guidelines on accessibility to WAI Level AA standard. We strive to achieve and maintain levels of accessibility that conform to the AA standard. 

We are aware that some areas of our website don't meet the standard of accessibility we aim for generally. These are usually the third party tools and applications accessed from our web pages and we are working with suppliers to try and improve the accessibility standard in these areas.


We have made every effort to ensure this web site is easily readable using 'plain English'. In addition, we have ensured that the design of this website is not an obstacle to its usability and readability.


This site has been designed to be accessible to as many web browsers as possible. Please use the facilities within your browser to present the pages in the best way for you. Most browsers will allow you to alter font size and you may also be able to make other changes.
