We are ready to move beyond Birdlings towards Little River and beyond with the roll out of our new Banks Peninsula community website www.bankspeninsula.kiwi. For an overview of what we are attempting to achieve, there’s a short outline on the front page of the website.
Now for a little more background… There are currently no Banks Peninsula community that allow individuals and small business to interact in a Peninsula community-centric way. Another objective for this website and one that we hope will become useful to many small businesses is aimed at encouraging visitors to the area to stay longer as they find more things to do.
So, by just going to our site, people will be able to plug into those small businesses and individuals that provide an invaluable contribution to the Banks Peninsula Experience. We plan to print and circulate bankspeninsula.kiwi business cards.
I have been working, primarily on technical features of the web site. There is still a heap of work to do, including more search engine optimisation, social media connectivity and tweaks to the layout and an online shopping portal for individuals and small businesses. But most of the work from here on in will be to provide content and some more structure to the Community Groups functionality.

Please do consider a donation to this work. So far, I have invested in all of the online resources required to develop run this web site myself and I have no benefactors funding my time for this community project. There is a donation Button at the bottom of the Front page. Donations are directed to our Changinglandscapes.NZ Ltd. business account and are accounted for as a business income.
