Swimming and Spa Pools
Summer is coming and we want you and your family summer to be safe. We wish to remind you that all new swimming/spa pools must, at all times remain fully compliant with the Building Act 2004.
For those of you contemplating purchasing a swimming pool, maybe as a Christmas present, Council would like to advise you that any pool capable of holding water at 400mm or more of depth must meet the requirements for restriction of access to pools.
The construction of pool fencing requires a building consent prior to constructing or erecting the pool and a Code Compliance Certificate prior to filling the pool with water.
Pool regulations are complex and can be hard to understand so we recommend seeking advice from those who know the rules, remember we are here to help too so please get in touch with us if you are unsure about anything.
There are some instances where a pool may be exempt from being fenced, so please consult your local Council before you begin the process of purchasing a pool, to find out if your pool needs consent and avoid penalties for not complying with the rules.
