This page contains information on safety barriers, requirements for fencing and rules for private swimming pools.
In 1992, the state government established compulsory standards for pool safety barriers, which requires local governments to inspect all private swimming pools when they are installed. Inspections are then to be repeated at least once every four years. In the city of Subiaco, these inspections are carried out every two years.
For information on swimming pool safety requirements, please refer to the city's guidelines for fencing around swimming pools (PDF, 227KB)
For information about rules for swimming pools, please refer to the Building Commission website.
All swimming pools in the City of Subiaco must be registered with the city and a building permit is required for all new above and below ground swimming pools. Visit the Building applications and forms page for information on how to lodge your building permit application.
