As part of the changes, you will be required to register your swimming pool and/or spa with Glen Eira City Council between 1 December 2019 and 1 June 2020.
As a pool or spa owner, you have an obligation to maintain the operation of your swimming pool or spa barrier to prevent access to the pool or spa. Gates and doors must be self-latching and remain closed except when entering the pool or spa.
How do you check for compliance?
You can check whether your pool and spa complies with the relevant legislation by referring to the checklists provided by the Victorian Building Authority. Requirements vary depending upon the date that your pool or spa was installed. Please view checklists links below:
