Accessing information from South Holland District Council’s website has been made easier thanks to new upgrades.

General accessibility improvements have been made to the site, making it easier to use for residents who have difficulty reading website text or are blind.

Users can now have website text read out, change the colour, font and size of text, magnify sections of the page and alter the background colour.

To help everybody access the site, there is now the ability to have website pages translated into several different languages.

To start using these options, visit and click on ‘Accessibility’ at the top of the page.

Coun Sally Slade, portfolio holder for digital and customer access, said: “We are keen to make the website as easy to use as possible, for all our residents and these developments will certainly help to make a positive difference.

“This is just one example of our pledge to provide digital services that are so good residents chose to use them.”

These latest improvements are the first of several planned website upgrades scheduled to take place throughout 2017, with news of another significant update to follow shortly.
