Disproportionate burden assessment for the key housing needs statistics


This annual document provides key statistics relating to the housing register, lettings and housing stock in Colchester. Housing is a statutory function of the council and therefore transparent reporting is important.

Benefits of creating an accessible version

The benefits of creating a HTML version of this PDF would be:
  • A fully accessible version for all users to access
  • An easily searchable and indexable version

Burden placed on the organisation

The document contains tables, diagrams and graphics that we have estimated would take a disproportionate amount of content designer's time to turn into HTML.

Contributing factors

Other factors relevant to this decision are:
  • We would anticipate interest in this document being limited.
  • We will provide accessible versions if requested. 


The time and difficulty it would take to turn this into a web page, and the likely lack of interest from the public, represents a disproportionate burden. We will continue to assist with accessible versions on request.
