Consultation has concluded

We invite the community to provide feedback on the draft swimming pool inspection program.

The Swimming Pools Act 1992 and Swimming Pools Regulation 2018 is the legislation relating to the requirements for swimming pools in NSW. The Act and regulation require that all Councils develop and adopt a program for the inspection of swimming pools in its area.

The Act and Regulations do not require Council to inspect every pool but mandates inspections for certain types of pools i.e. tourist & visitor accommodation along with properties that contain 2 or more dwellings. The draft program includes the requirement for these pools to be inspected every three years.

Council’s draft swimming pool program aims to increase pool safety awareness and compliance and to explain the scope of the proposed inspection program.

This program addresses each of these responsibilities and proposes that Council where resources permit and there is no valid certificate of compliance or occupation certificate carryout a risk-based inspection program.

This consultation will close on 06 February 2024
