I'd moved house in October last year and the first person to knock on my door was a neighbour telling me how the local Council want to build a new school/campus on the park behind our houses. Because of COVID, the public consultation aspect has been held entirely online.

We've made a point of dissecting the site and a number of public have complained they cannot access the site at all.

fwiw this is it:

For some daft reason it does some user agent sniffing and won't let certain user agents in at all, including linux users and Googlebot.

The most amusing part is in the image. Click on reject cookies, you get tracked, click accept you don't.

I'm not one for knowing the finer details of GDPR and the obligations of public bodies to provide accessible info, but to me this site is failing in a few regards.
