The State Government is introducing changes to safety barriers and fencing around private swimming pools and spas to reduce incidences of young children drowning. The new regulations start from 1 December 2019 with all owners of existing swimming pools and spas required to register their pool with Council. Register your swimming pool or spa online.

Building projects determine the requirements of building and planning permits, as well as compliance with building, health and safety regulations. Check out your Property Information to find out which specific regulations affect your individual property including zones, overlays and easements. If you know your project involves road access, hoarding, or access through council reserves, you may need a Asset Protection Permit.

The advice can be obtained either in person at the Civic Centre during business hours or by calling 9518 3555.
