Business Peak District


Business Peak District is a free-to-join organisation for businesses in and around the Peak District National Park. With a community of over 650 members it acts as a voice and lobby for organisations of all shapes, sizes and sectors across the region.

With funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) via the Inspired by the Peak District initiative the organisation was in a position to redevelop its website into a more user friendly and dynamic offer.

How We Helped

Working alongside WordPress Websites that Work this was a website redesign that incorporated an existing membership directory and rather static and ageing blog. With little attention paid to it, it had stagnated somewhat and needed an upgrade.

Continuing with WordPress we used the Avada theme to create an improved user experience while adding a full event calendar for partner and member events.


With an improved blog and event calendar the website now acts as a resource and hub for business news and events around the region. Far much more user friendly and with much more care and attention it also acts as a central location for members to download the Inspired by the Peak District branding toolkit and ranks in Google for a wide variety of member and non-member keywords.
