It looks like I may be moving there for work very shortly along with my wife and newborn son. What are people's recommendations for places to live? Are there places to avoid?
Have been browsing on trademe and real estate sites, looking at renting at this stage to get a feel for the place. So far Bell Block looks really ideal location and setting wise but a number of houses are within 2 to 5 km of the airport and appear to be directly under the flight path. Does anyone live in Bell Block? Is it noisy?
Also if this job falls through what industries are there in terms of jobs? Is employment hard to find? Are there local businesses that are to be avoided?
Lastly what is the culture and entertainment like? Plenty to see and do? Good parks, beaches or rivers to go for a walk with the kid and a dog?
Thanks for any input, sorry if I have stepped on any toes and feel free to ask me for more information.
