Before installing any swimming, paddling or wading pools (including spas and inflatable or above-ground pools) with a depth greater than 300mm (30cm), you must obtain a building permit.
Building permits can be obtained from a private Building Surveyor or from Council's Municipal Building Surveyor.
Pools and spas of this type must be enclosed within a safety barrier that complies with the Australian Standard 1926. Pool owners need to ensure safety barriers comply with building regulations and that the Australian Standards are maintained at all times.
You should check that household objects that could be used for climbing (such as tree branches, pot plants, chairs and BBQs) are not located any closer than 1.2m from the outside of a pool safety barrier.
