Swimming pools and spas

In December 2019, the Victorian Government introduced new laws to make swimming pools and spas safer. If you own a pool or spa or plan to have one built, you must:

  • register each pool or spa on your property with the City of Stonnington
  • after registering, have it inspected and lodge a Certificate of Barrier Compliance (form 23).

You only need to register your pool or spa once. After registering, you'll need to have your pool or spa inspected and submit a Certificate of Barrier Compliance (form 23) every four years.

If you are a surveyor or inspector, you can lodge your Certificate of Non-Compliance (form 24) online. If you’re unable to lodge it online, call us on 03 8290 1333 to arrange an alternative method.
