On 1 December 2019, the State Government introduced new laws to improve the safety around barriers and fencing. This requires all owners of existing permanent and/or relocatable swimming pools and spas to register their pool/spa with Council. More information: Permit requirements for swimming pools and spas
All permanent pools and spas, and most relocatable ones capable of holding water to a depth greater than 30cm must be registered. These include: inflatable pools, above-ground pools, indoor pools, hot tubs, bathing or wading pools.
A relocatable swimming pool or spa must be registered if it is erected for 3 or more consecutive days.
Please note: even if the swimming pool or spa is deemed relocatable, it must have a compliant barrier at all times.
- If you have a pool or spa that was constructed on or before 30 June 1994, you were required to lodge your certificate of barrier compliance by 1 June 2022.
- If you have a pool or spa that was constructed between 1 July 1994 to 30 April 2010, you were required to lodge your certificate of barrier compliance by 1 June 2023.
If you have not lodged your certificate, please lodge your certificate as soon as possible, as penalties may apply if you fail to lodge your certificate.
