Adobe Acrobat .PDF files

Like many websites sometimes the information we have to provide is too large or complex to display on a web page, so we have to use pdf files.

The Basildon Council website uses Adobe Acrobat .PDF files.

To view these files you will need to have the free Adobe Reader viewer installed on your computer.

If you do not have Acrobat Reader to download this viewer free of charge to install on your computer then visit the Adobe website:

If you are visually impaired and need help viewing the .PDF attachments on this website then please visit the Adobe Accessibility website for assistance where you can find out how to configure the free Adobe Reader software to work with the assistive technology you may use and obtain greater access to PDF files :

Viewing PDF Files

To view a .PDF file attachment : if you have the Adobe Acrobat viewer installed on your PC then just click on the link to the .PDF file where it appears on a web page.

  • Depending on your browsers settings it will then open in either the web browser window you are using or in a separate browser window.
  • Use either your browser's 'back' button, or close the second window, to return to our website.
  • If you want to open the .PDF file in a separate browser window (or tab if you browser supports tabbed browsing), so that you can continue to surf the web while the .PDF file downloads, then 'right mouse click' on the appropriate document link that you want to use, and from the range of given options select 'open in new window', you can then swap between windows using the task bar at the bottom of the screen or tabs in your browser window.

To download a .PDF file attachment : you can also download a .PDF file from this website to your hard disk for later use, to do so : 'right mouse click' on the appropriate document link that you want to use, and from the range of given options select 'save target as ...', then browse to the location on your hard disk where you want to save the file to, and finally click 'save'. You can now open the file and use it as much as you like when you are 'off-line'.
