You must register your pool with the Gold Coast City Council before 4th November 2011 Deadline. Penalties of up to $2000.00 can apply after this date.
The Queensland Government has introduced new pool safety laws aimed at further reducing the incidences of drowning and serious immersion injuries of young children in swimming pools. These laws affect new and existing pools. Pool owners have until 30 November 2015 to comply with the new pool safety laws, or earlier if they sell or lease their property before this time.
