Countryside Properties PLC recognises the importance of providing a website that is accessible to all user groups, including the disabled. This page states our intention that our websites are usable and accessible to all users, and describes some of the measures taken.
Our objective is for all pages to confirm to the W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0, Level A, with the majority of Level AA and Level AAA requirements also met.
Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or feedback regarding the accessibility of this site, or if you experience any difficulty using it.
The site has been designed to support the following browsers:
• Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 and later
• Standards compliant browsers, including
• Mozilla Firefox 3.6 and later
• Apple Safari 4 and later
• Google Chrome 9 and later
The UK Government Access Keys Standard has been applied to this site. These provide a keyboard shortcut for users wishing to go directly to specific parts of the site, and help those who do not use a pointing device, such as a mouse.
A subset of the standard has been used, and the access keys are defined as follows:
• Access key 1 - Homepage
• Access key 3 - Sitemap
• Access key 4 - Search
• Access key 9 - Contact us
• Access key 0 - Accessibility Statement (this page)
• Access key T - Top of the page
Access keys work slightly differently depending on which browser and type of computer you are using. On a Windows PC, press ALT + the relevant access key. On an Apple Mac, press Control + the relevant access key. Then press Enter to activate the link.
All non-decorative images on this site are accompanied by brief alternative text which identifies the image or its function. This alternative text is usually only visible when the browser is explicitly configured not to display images.
All text links are written so that they make sense when read out of context. Where appropriate, links have title attributes to describe the link in greater detail (for example, to advise you if the link will open in a new window).
The colour scheme used by this website has been checked for accessibility against the different colour blindness conditions. No information displayed on this website relies on colour alone.
The text on this website is resizable. You can change the text size to your preference by using the links provided on each page, or through your browser.
We recommend that users download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat to view Adobe PDF files. Please note some of our older archived Adobe PDF files may not be completely accessible when using screen readers.
Structured, semantic mark-up
This site uses style sheets (CSS) to separate content from presentation. If your browser does not support style sheets, the use of structured semantic mark-up ensures that the content of each page is still readable and clearly structured.
