Pool and spa registrations - do all pools and spas need to be registered?

Yes - all permanent, portable or relocatable swimming pools and spas, regardless of when they were constructed or erected, must be registered with council.  

All swimming pools and spas capable of containing water greater than 300 millimetres must have a compliant safety barrier to restrict access to the pool area by young children. Barriers are required for:

  • in-ground pools and spas
  • above-ground pools and spas, including inflatable pools capable of containing water to a depth of more than 300mm.
  • indoor pools and spas
  • wading pools that may contain more than 300 millimetres of water.
