Website accessibility statement

We want everyone who visits the Mitchell Shire Council website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.

We're working hard to achieve our goal of Level AA accessibility, but we realise there are some areas that still need improving.

To help make the our website a positive place for everyone, we've been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.
