Inspections of Private Pool / Spa

Published: Tuesday, 22 January 2019 at 10:47:07 AM


The Town of Cottesloe will be carrying out inspections of all known private swimming pool/spa safety barriers within the Town commencing in February 2019.

Authorised Officers will be visiting properties during the months of February and March, between the hours of 8.30am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday.

All owners of Swimming Pool/Spa safety barriers are required to maintain their barriers to meet Australian Standard AS 1926.1-2012 (swimming pool/spa safety barriers part 1).

Other legislation may also be applicable depending upon the age of your pool/spa. This information is available via the following websites;


To ensure the assessment is carried out as efficiently as possible, you are requested to contact the Towns Compliance & Regulatory Service team on 9285 5000 to make an appointment.

You do not have to be present during the assessment; the officers just require access to the property/ pool area. Your assistance and cooperation in allowing officers to undertake this very vital task is appreciated.
