Mandatory pool and spa registration extended

The Victorian Government has extended the deadline for its new mandatory pool and spa registration due to the impacts of coronavirus.

Private pool and spa owners now have until Sunday 1 November 2020 to register with their local council – an extension of five months from the original deadline.

This legislative requirement is in response to a series of coronial investigations, which found that faulty and unsafe pool barriers had contributed to the deaths of children in backyard pools.

For more information and to register, call 9278 4444 or go to Register a pool or spa.
