Web Accessibility

To experience the best possible website visit

In designing we have sought to understand the needs and aspirations of people with disabilities and do our utmost to ensure that there is no discrimination on the grounds of disability. Upton Country Park and BCP Council is committed to equality of opportunity for all, and aims to provide access for people with disabilities.

W3C Standards compliance

This website has been developed with the intention of making it accessible to as many visitors as possible. We have achieved this by ensuring that the site has been structured in a logical way with clear navigation.


We have used Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control the visual layout of the site. If your browser does not support CSS or you choose to override our style sheet with browser settings, the site is still readable/usable.


Images include the “ALT” attribute.


The primary website content is always available via the primary (main) and secondary (top) navigation menus that run along the top of the page; on desktops and laptops these navigation menus are ‘fixed’ (i.e. they do not scroll with the page content, remaining visible and easily accessible at all times).

If you have any queries or comments regarding the accessibility of this site please contact

In all browsers
Holding down the CTRL button and scrolling the mouse-wheel up and down will zoom the entire site up or down in size accordingly.
