New Pool Regulations

New Pool Regulations  

Have you got a backyard pool or spa?

Pool and spa owners are required to register pools or spas with their local councils. This was initially to be done by 1 June 2020, but has been extended to 1 November 2020. The new deadline is an acknowledgement of the extra burden currently on families and on councils. 

Owners will also be required to lodge a compliance certificate for their pool or spa barrier every four years. These new laws have been introduced to keep young children safe. 

In addition, owners will be required to engage a registered building surveyor or building inspector to inspect and certify the compliance of their safety barrier every four years.

Better safety means more enjoyable summers.

To register your pool or spa you can download the application form below or call Council's Building Department on 1300 520 520.
