If you are a swimming pool owner, you have responsibilities.
Drowning is one of the major causes of death for NSW children under the age of 5. Manly Council encourages pool owners to carry out regular inspections of their pool fencing. A letter was sent to residents, with a 'Swimming Pool Fencing Checklist'. The checklist contained information to assist pool owners to achieve compliance with the Swimming Pools Act 1992.
Residents can arrange for Council to inspect their pool and issue a 'Swimming Pool Compliance Certificate'. A Fee applies as per Council's Fees and Charges.
For more information about pool fencing, or to arrange an inspection, contact the Council's Compliance Unit on (02) 9976 1500 or via email.
