Plain English language
Plain English crystal-mark
We no longer display the plain English Campaign crystal-mark due to the costs involved. We are still committed to producing web content that is easy to read and understand.
Report a problem with website content
We would like to know if you find any of the website content difficult to read or understand.
Changing content that is hard to read
We will contact the Section of the council responsible for writing the content. Then, we will ask them to rewrite the web page using shorter words, sentences and paragraphs. We will also carry out readability checks using web checking software and Word.
Acronyms and abbreviations
Where possible we try and explain all acronyms and abbreviations in full when we first use them on a web page.
