New Pool Fencing Mandatory Registration

Sandhurst Melbourne New Pool Regulations

Do you own a pool or spa? Are you aware that new legislation was introduced on Sunday 1 December 2019 whereby owners are required to register it with their local council by 1 June 2020, and have their safety barrier inspected once every four years?

The new laws apply to swimming pools and spas that are capable of holding more than 300mm (30cm). This includes relocatable and temporary swimming pools and spas.

Registration costs $79 which includes a registration fee of $31.80 and a mandatory records search fee of $47.20.
