A second how-to workshop for property developers has been arranged by the Christchurch City Council after the first attracted a big turn-out.

The council ran the first free seminar in August, aimed mainly at owners who would be rebuilding with insurance payouts.

It attracted 260 people, a mixture of owners, investors, and existing and future developers.

Mayor Bob Parker said the first workshop was ''an outstanding success," and generated interest for a second session for those who had missed out.

Parker said developers needed specialised skills to avoid costly mistakes when building in challenging circumstances.

''It's important that future developers arm themselves with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed."

The half-day workshop will run on September 18. It will cover topics including feasibility and market analysis, urban design principles, consenting and planning processes, environmental performance, and risk management.

Would-be developers keen to attend need to register with the council by September 13.
