Jargon and plain English


We’re corporate members of the Plain English Campaign, which means that we’re committed to producing all our information in plain English.

We’ll avoid the use of complicated terms, often referred to as jargon, wherever possible.

Sometimes we may have to use technical or legal terms relating to a subject that you may not understand. When this happens we will explain the terms we have used.

If you find something from us that you feel isn’t written in a clear and easy to understand way, then please email us atcommunications@portsmouthcc.gov.uk to tell us about it.
