We have taken care to design and build our website to make it easy to access for all our visitors. We have ensured that the site achieves the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative Priority 1 criteria. We have also kept to a number of coding standards set out by the W3C. This means that the site should be easily visible on a number of different platforms.
The following information is intended to assist you in getting the most from our site. Should you have any feedback on the ease of use of this site or suggestions to make improvements, please contact Vince Plant, Chambers Director.

Navigation menus are marked up as HTML lists. This ensures that the number of links in the list is read out at the start and it can be skipped easily.
We have provided tools at the foot of the homepage of the website to make the size of the body text of the site larger. You can also use your browser to set the text size. This can normally be done via the browser's View menu (Go to 'view', choose 'text size', and select the appropriate font size, for example 'larger').
