Swimming pools

If you are considering installing a spa or swimming pool, please ensure that you check if there are any requirements for fencing and building approvals. You will find that for most installations, a fence will be required and development approval must be obtained for the pool or spa (including the fence) before any work commences.

Note: The Queensland Development Code defines a swimming pool as a structure that is capable of being filled to a depth of 300 mm, or has a volume of more than 2000 litres, or has a filtration system.

For more information on swimming pool fencing visit the Queensland Building and Construction Commission website.
