The team at Encore Property would like to take this opportunity to remind you with the warmer months and the popularity of inflatable pools, that should you intend to use these you must have the owner’s permission and if it is more than 30cms of water it will need to be fenced as per Council regulations.
If your property has an inground pool, please advise us immediately if there are any issues with the pool safety fence so we can have this rectified as soon as possible.
The council are using drones to identify unfenced pools and will issue fines should these requirements not be met.
***THE State Government has launched a campaign to warn people about the dangers of inflatable pools.
On average, one child dies from drowning in a portable pool every year, with others needing hospital treatment and some suffering permanent brain damage.
