The health and safety of residents, customers and employees is our top priority and we are continuing to monitor developments in response to COVID-19. Council facilities are open - please follow physical distancing rules of 1.5 metres, limit outdoor gatherings in line with NSW Government restrictions, and continue to practice safe hygiene and wash hands regularly.
In line with legislation, outdoor swimming pools must be enclosed by a fence that acts as a child-resistant barrier. The fence must separate the swimming pool from any residential building situated on the premises and from any adjoining or private properties.
The fence must be designed, constructed, installed and maintained in accordance with Australian Standard AS1926.1-2012 - Safety Barriers for Swimming Pools.
This is not a complete list of requirements. Please refer to the Australian Standard for detailed legislation and requirements. There are provisions for older swimming pool to comply with older versions of the Standards.
Access to and from residential buildings or the waterfront must be outside the swimming pool enclosure and not through the swimming pool area.
