Approval to Operate a Public Swimming Pool or Spa - New South Wales

Description

If you are going to operate a public swimming pool or spa you are required to notify the Council.

A swimming pool or spa is considered to be public if either:

  • the public is admitted as an entitlement of membership of a club
  • it is provided at a workplace for the use of employees
  • it is provided at a hotel, motel or guest house or at holiday units, or similar facility, for the use of guests
  • it is provided at a school or hospital.

A pool on private premises is not a public pool unless it is used for commercial purposes.

The operator of a public swimming pool or spa is also required to ensure that the pool or spa and the surrounding area is kept clean (i.e. in such condition as to minimise the transmission of disease).
