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 300mm, or has a volume of more than 2000 litres, or has a filtration system.
