Hi we have a 3 bed house rental in NZ. Our house is down a long driveway from the road and also in a cul-de-sac.
A neighbour wants to open a day care centre 3 doors down from us. Would there be any + or - issues?

Possible problems with....
Parking (bothe staff parking & parent parking)
May need addition deliveries
May need additional waste collections (possibly hazard ous waste ...nappies!!)
Depending how big, but possibly cooking smells/noise from air con or heating systems

You mean for childcare? Will it be a big setting like a nursery or residential sized setting like a childminders?
I am a childminder and the only effect it has on my nighbours is they get all the kids stopping to say hello to them, they say they like to hear them playing out too. (I have asked them if the kids disturb them/make too much noise.)
Depending on how many people coming each day I think your main issues may be with traffic/parking in the cul de sac.

My sister lives next to a childminder who also runs an after school club. The main issue is loads of cars pulling up outside the house and the noise from the children playing outside.
My own 2 make enough noise in the garden so times that by how many they will have, plus riding round in little trucks etc, the fights.
It is really noisy when I visit her, I wouldn't want to be sat outside listening to that day in day out. I suppose it also depends if you work so that you aren't there for most of the day.
