If you have difficulties using a mouse, the site can be navigated using only a keyboard.

In technical language, all pages on this site should be valid to Hyper Text Mark-up Language (HTML 5) 1.0 and use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

This website conforms to the UK government guidelines for websites.

It also follows the Worldwide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 and strives to meet level triple-A checkpoints.

Accessibility limitations

While we've tried to make sure this site is accessible, you may encounter some limitations, for example when viewing Google Maps or some of our videos. Some sections of this website are controlled by third parties and so it has not been possible for the same standards of accessibility to be applied to them.

Maintaining an accessible site is an ongoing process and we are continually working to offer a user friendly experience. However, if you have any problems using this website please contact us or telephone us on 03000 132 132.

Disability Duties

Mid Ulster District Council recognises that each customer of the Council is an individual with different needs, who has the right to be treated with dignity and respect when visiting our premises, using our services and speaking with our staff.
Section 49A of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (as amended by the Disability Discrimination (NI) Order 2006) requires the Council, in carrying out is functions, to have due regard to:

  • Promote positive attitudes towards disabled people
  • Encourage participation by disabled people in public life.

We are committed to integrating our disability duties within all aspects of the Council’s business and the Disability Duties Action Plan sets out how we intend to do it.

In order to make it easier for disabled people, their families and carers to plan trips, and avail of beneficial information including where they can park, what toilet facilities are available to them and how to access support in a shop or facility should they require it, the Council is supporting the Access Mid Ulster website which contains all this information and much more! The project is led by Mid Ulster Disability Forum. Click on the below link to access the site:
