Thank you everyone for your replies and help!

Katie from Avonside - Dallington

Hi all,
Further to the below post, I want to thank everyone who reached out with offers and support etc, happy to now say my daughter and I have secured a place along with our old fur baby, so excited for the move and our new journey!

Just really throwing this out there on here as well. After 10yrs renting current property under an agency I need to move on by the end of Jan/start of feb due to house being sold!

We are looking for a minimum 2x bedroom, fully fenced secured yard to allow my old fat lazy dog and my beautiful child to play!

I have a FABULOUS reference from the agency with a high recommendation including the dog, who is sad to loose us as valued tenants.

Please if anyone hears or knows of any rentals becoming available over the next month (pet friendly) can you kindly let me know.
Much appreciated.

I hope everyone had a lovely Xmas and New Year.

Thank you in advance.

Parking charges in central Christchurch could skyrocket

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Christchurch City Council’s draft 10-year budget outlines an intention to increase on-street parking from July from $3.10 an hour to $4.50 – a 45 per cent increase.

The cost to park at the council’s Lichfield St car park building could also rise from $2.80 an hour to $4 – a 43 per cent increase. The rate at the Art Gallery car park could double from $2 an hour to $4.

In a bid to cut operating costs the council is also proposing to reduce library hours, permanently shut the mobile library and close the Akaroa and Lyttelton service centres, as well as the Riccarton Rd bus lounges.

Read more here and tell us what you think of the council's proposals in the comments below.
