Private Swimming Pools and Spas

Important Information for Pool Owners

Please be advised that all known private swimming pool and spa barriers within the Town of Cottesloe will be inspected during 2020 and 2021. Based on the outcome of the inspections, an inspection program will be developed to ensure every swimming pool barrier is inspected within four years, as per the requirements of the Building Regulations 2012. This means, some properties may have their swimming pool and spa barriers inspected twice in less than four years.

Should there be no attempt by homeowners to rectify any non-compliant matters identified during the inspections, an infringement notice of $1000 may be issued, and a re-inspection fee of $100 may also apply.

The Town appreciates your cooperation and looks forward to working with you.
