Owners and occupiers of a property with a private swimming or spa pool are advised that the Shire has commenced its swimming pool inspection program.

Swimming pool inspectors will be visiting properties throughout the Shire to ensure your safety barriers comply.

The Shire is required to carry out inspections of swimming pool/spa barriers at least once every four years. The fee for the inspection is incorporated in your Rates.

The Building Act 2011, provides the Shires pool inspectors a legal right of property entry to conduct these inspections, which are all undertaken with prior notification.

For detailed information on safety barrier requirements it is recommended that you visit Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety website.

If you would like to book a specific time or have any questions in regard to your inspection, please call the Shire on 9175 8000 and ask to speak to one of the Swimming Pool inspection team.
