Swimming Pool & Fence
Any swimming pool (including spa pools and portable pools) that is capable of holding a depth of water of 300mm or more, has a volume of greater than 2000 litres or has a filtration system requires a fence compliant with the pool safety standard.
A fence is required even if the pool is only installed temporarily (e.g. inflatable pool from discount store).
A pool fence requires a building approval.
