Tamworth Regional Council strives to deliver accessible and user friendly information to as many users as possible, especially those that may use assistive technologies (such as screen readers). Council values all feedback in relation to accessibility and useability of information found on this website. If you encounter any problems, require assistance accessing content or would like to make a suggestions how to improve the accessibility of the website, please complete the website feedback form.

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0

During the development of this website, Council attempted to follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0, as set out by the World Wide Consortium (W3C). Council is working toward complying with a Level AA accessibility standard, wherever possible.

Cascading Style Sheets

This website uses Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) to provide a consistent layout and format of text and objects.

The top banner incorporates an A+ and A- symbol to increase or decrease the text size. Alternatively, users can adjust the text size and zoom settings within their browser.

Skip to Content

The top banner of this site has a skip to content link, to skip past the banner and navigation items and move straight to the page content. This feature is particularly useful for users using assistive technologies.


All links on this website have been developed so the text of the link provides an accurate description of the source. Wherever possible, links have tooltips to further explain the context of the link, particularly outlining if it is a:

  • document link
  • internal link – to another page within Council’s website
  • external link – to another website


PDF Documents

The Council website has attempted to use HyperText Markup Language (HTML) where possible to present information on the website. However, there are a number of circumstances where information and/or documents are best presented as a Portable Document Format (PDF) document.

PDF documents are compressed and optimised to increase the user experience. If you do not already have a copy of Adobe PDF reader, please visit the Adobe Reader download section to install the latest version.

While PDF format is suitable for many users, Council acknowledges some users may find this format unsuitable. Adobe has an online Accessibility Resource Centre to further assist with accessibility of PDF documents. Adobe also provide an online tool for converting PDF documents to plain text or HTML documents.

Alternatively, you can source an alternative document format by contacting our friendly website team. Please complete the website feedback form with the document name or URL, as well as the document format you prefer.
