The Victorian Government has introduced new safety standards from 1 December 2019, in an effort to prevent drownings of young children in home pools by improving the maintenance process of safety barriers.
Under the new safety standards, all pool and spa owners are required to:
1. Register your pool or spa with Knox Council by 1 June 2020, and pay the lodgement fee of $79.00*. You can do this:
- Online (register button below)
- Or in person at Knox Civic Centre, 511 Burwood Hwy, Wantirna South VIC 3152.
*The lodgement fee includes the pool or spa registration fee of $31.80, and the information search fee of $47.20. The information search fee enables Council to conduct the required searches to determine the date of construction of your pool or spa which defines the applicable barrier standard.
