Disproportionate burden assessment for sustainability what you can do document


This document informs residents of ways they can tackle climate change and reduce their environmental impact.

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 information provided in the PDF is mostly available on the council's website in HTML format so it can be read using either format. It is likely that information in the PDF will be updated fairly regularly which would place a significant amount of time of a content designer's time to complete.

Contributing factors

Other factors relevant to this decision are:
  • The information in the PDF is also mostly available on the council's website. Information has been placed in the PDF in order to make it more visually appealing, and easier to download for residents who would like to do this.


Most of the information in the PDF is already available on the council's website in HTML format. The PDF has just been created as an additional document to give residents an option of the format they would like to view the information in. Therefore it has been decided that the PDF should be uploaded on the council's website.

If you need any of the information from the PDF provided in another format, contact climate.change@colchester.gov.uk.
