its built on very muddy ground , if you buy a section or house in there , buy a boat you will need it too leave one day

It would be very easy to get lost finding your own house after a night out

I have this problem when we try to find a friends house in the new Wigram subdivision. The houses look almost identical and our friends house is indistinguishable from the house next door. One time we parked down their driveway and another car came to park there. Turns out we were at the wrong house!

and it's not helped by the way owners/developers seem to be so slow at putting up letter boxes with numbers.

you need to make sure you have good neighbours. So you can ring them when you want to open your windows so they can shut theirs as they are soo close.

Its like being in Aranui but worse. We went in there for a look. There were about 7 maori children, raging from 4-9 just roaming the streets without any supervision. Gross place i would never consider it.

What about Prestons that is also built on a swamp ?

The majority of land in and around Christchurch was swamp or dodgy at some point in time, the only difference is that most of Christchurch was developed long ago and no one is around who can remember when the land was swampy.
