Swimming Pool and Spa Registration

New laws came into effect on 1 December 2019 which require the mandatory registration of a swimming pool or spa in Victoria with your relevant Council.
Share
If you are the owner of land in Wellington Shire on which a pool or spa is located, you must now register your pool and/or spa.

If you own a pool or spa in Wellington Shire Council, it must be registered with Wellington Shire Council prior to 1 June 2020.

Prior to 1 December 2019, Pool and Spa registration with your local Council in Victoria was not mandatory. If your pool or spa was constructed prior to 1 June 2020 it will not be registered, and you are now required to register the pool or spa.

The new laws, introduced by the Victorian Government on 1 December 2019, apply to pools and spas that are capable of holding more than 300mm (30cm) of water. These include:

  • Permanent (In-ground) pools
  • Above ground pools
  • Indoor pools
  • Spas and Hot Tubs
  • Bathing and wading pools
  • Relocatable (moveable or portable) pools that are capable of holding more than 300mm of water for three consecutive days

Registration Fees (Incl. GST)

  • Pool or Spa Registration Fee: $31.80
  • Information Search Fee (Fee is applicable if you are unable to provide a the Building Permit and Certificate of Final Inspection): $47.20
  • Failure to register swimming pool or spa within relevant timeframe: Fine of up to $1,652.20 will be issued

Once a pool or spa is registered, it will remain registered until it is removed from the register. No further registration fees are applicable.

Registration Forms

To register, or decommission/remove, your pool or spa please complete the applicable form below:

After Registration

Once you have completed the Pool and Spa Registration Form, Council will contact you to advise:

  • That your pool or spa has been registered
  • The date of construction of your pool or spa and the applicable barrier standard
  • Your right to appeal to the Building Appeals Board (BAB) in relation to the Council’s determination of the date of construction of the pool or spa
  • The date by which the first or next Certificate of Barrier Compliance must be lodged with Council.

Pool owners will be required to submit a Certificate of Compliance to Council every four years. Council will contact you to advise when your Certificate is due to be submitted.

Certificates of Compliance are available from a registered Building Surveyor.
