Richmond Car Parking Survey

JUNE 2015
Tasman District Council is planning to undertake a District Car Parking Strategy, focussing primarily on Richmond and Motueka. Richmond Unlimited as a key stakeholder in this strategy. By completing the Car Parking Survey, Richmond businesses  can feed information to the Council Engineering staff to help them in their drafting of the Car Park Strategy. This is a great opportuity to help inform and shape the strategy.
The Strategy is a long-term document and will be looking at issues such as provision of private parking, all day parking, compliance by those parking in short-term parking spots, paying for parking including leasing of parks to businesses, parking meters and parking buildings. As the Strategy will cover 30 years, we need to take into account that a different level of parking may be required then.
The Council will be looking at short-term as well as long-term strategies.
This survey will only take 3-5 minutes of your time….

Thank you for your time

Richmond Unlimited Website Upgrade

It’s finally here!

Richmond Unlimited have been working hard behind the scenes over the last months and it’s finally all paying off.

As you may be aware we have recently finished the WiFi installation and the great news is that the latest stats show a sustained usage growth. This means more and more people are logging on and discovering the Richmond Unlimited website.

The old site had served Richmond for a number of years but the biggest drawback was that it was not designed for the new, upwardly mobile generation so it was time that we upgraded that too!

Rather than make the old site ‘responsive’ (viewable on mobile devices) we felt the time was right to look at the wonderful opportunities available from the internet for growing Richmond businesses online.

We chose to work with gauk Media due mainly to their experience in growing their own businesses on the Web.  In short, gauk is run by entrepreneurs who happen to be able to build great websites.

We have launched the first stage of the new Richmond Smart Search application; a state-of-the-art, interactive mapping module that allows a visitor to easily find and filter just what they are looking for.

The Richmond Unlimited website is far more than a conventional directory.  It is a showcase for each business allowing you access to your listing so you can upload images, video, opening hours etc and even a Google street view of your premises.

No longer do visitors have to dig through hundreds of directory listings; ALL businesses and points of interest are available to view instantly with more map markers coming online all the time.

Richmond Unlimited are committed to the growth and prosperity of Richmond and will be doing all they can to enable you to showcase your business.

To compliment the new website we’re about to launch our newsletter service keeping Richmond businesses up to date on developments within their community.

So, we’re really excited about the coming months and will be contacting and working with all local businesses to ensure the new website maximizes every opportunity for you.
