Licencing - https://idox.tendringdc.gov.uk/online-applications//search.do?action=simple&searchType=LicencingApplication

The public access templates comply with WCAG 2.1 level AA.

However, using Axe/Lighthouse accessibility checking tools, we have identified that customisation has resulted in the following errors.

  • Colour contrast on buttons, menu bar and headers
  • Incorrectly nested headings
  • Language attribute
  • User scalability

These will be addressed at the next upgrade.
