hello all, we're only counting few weeks from now.. soon flying to chch. now my only concern is.... we're going to rent the flat in Phillipstown! previously i have read somewhere in this forum to stay away from east side.. namely Phillipstown! is that so? i'm not sure why, in what aspect? drugs? violence? unsafe for children? (we're a family of 4, with 2 small kids)
my husband was graciously offered that flat from his future colleague, as we have not yet decided where to live in chch.
though i heard some downside of that area, we decided to take it so we can settle a place once we arrive.
i hope anyone can enlighten me with my concern. thank you!!
