Dear Cheshire West and Chester Council,

The following questions relate to the websites run by the council.

Can you tell me when was the last audit conducted and can I have results of that audit?

Also what steps is the council taking to make sure that websites are accessable by September 23 2020?

Yours faithfully,

FOI West, Cheshire West and Chester Council

Dear Abdul Hai,

 

Thank you for your request for information of 30^th November which has
been logged as RFI 1849 and has been dealt with under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000. We confirm that Cheshire West and Chester Council
holds some information relating to your request.

 

For the purpose of clarity your request has been reproduced below:

 

The following questions relate to the websites run by the council.

 

Can you tell me when was the last audit conducted and can I have results
of that audit?

The Council has never had a full external audit of the website’s
accessibility and has not internally audited the pages. Checks are made on
each piece of content as it is published.

 

Also what steps is the council taking to make sure that websites are
accessable by September 23 2020?

The Council is working towards meeting the required standard using a
combination of an audit, internal training and a content review.

 

We trust this answers your query.

 

The Council considers that your request has been answered in full by
either confirming that information is not held, providing you with the
information requested, or explaining why any information has been withheld
and the reasons for any redaction. Where applicable, the Council has also
told you the reasons for the delay in responding to your request.

 

If you are unhappy with the way your request for information has been
handled you can request a review by writing to the Disclosures Team within
40 working days from the date of the Council’s response.

 

You are entitled to a review by the Council if:

·       You are dissatisfied with the Council’s explanation of why the
application was not dealt with within the 20 working day time limit.

·       All the information requested is not being disclosed and you have
not received an explanation why some information is not being disclosed.

·       A reason for the disclosures under the request being refused is
not received.

·       You consider that exemptions have been wrongly applied, and/or

·       You consider that a fee has been wrongly applied.

 

Please set out your grounds for seeking a review together with what
specific part of your request those grounds apply to and the outcome you
are seeking. The Council reserves the right to ask you for clarification
of the grounds for your review request if the grounds are not clear, and
to delay commencing the review if such grounds are not provided.
