Snowdonia National Park Authority is committed to making its websites accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

This accessibility statement applies to the following websites:

  • snowdonia.gov.wales
  • authority.snowdonia.gov.wales
  • planning.snowdonia.gov.wales
  • yrysgwrn.com/en

Compliance status

These websites are partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliance and/or the exemptions listed below.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:

(a) non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Multiple pages

  • WCAG 1.4.10 Reflow: At 400% zoom, the top of the cookie banner is partially cut off.
    This specifically refers to the explanatory text available at other zoom levels


  • WCAG 1.4.3 Contrast (minimum): The ‘Search by keyword’ placeholder text in the search bar does not have sufficient colour contrast.


  • Some of the videos embedded in the website do not have subtitles. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 AA Success Criterion 1.2.2.

(b) disproportionate burden

We acknowledge the challenges in ensuring the accessibility of PDF documents on our website, particularly for Planning and Authority meeting agendas. As a small Authority, limited resources, statutory obligations, short timescales, dynamic content, and dependency on external contributors contribute to the disproportionate burden we face in meeting accessibility standards.

Please contact us if you need further information.

(c) the content is not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

  • WCAG 2.1 AA Success Criterion 1.2.4 requires that captions are provided on live audio or video. This criterion is not within the scope of the accessibility regulations.
  • Some PDFs published before 23 September 2018 are not accessible. PDFs that are not essential to providing our services published before this date are exempt within the scope of the accessibility regulations.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared on 5 March 2024.

This statement was prepared by way of self-assessment and the use of a third party accessibility tool.
