Website accessibility

Broken Hill City Council is committed to ensuring the equal and equitable access of information to all of its website visitors, including those using assistive technologies.

The OpenCities platform that our website is powered by is audited annually against Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 AA standards by Vision Australia – Australia’s peak body and industry leader for the provision of digital accessibility services.

 WCAG 2.0 AA standards also feature as a routine part of training for all of our content authors.

Portable Document Format (PDF) Documents

We have attempted to use HyperText Markup Language (HTML) where possible to present information on our website.

However, there are a number of circumstances where information and/or documents are best presented in PDF format.

If you encounter information presented as a PDF and have trouble accessing it, please contact us to request the information in an alternative format.
