Approval to Operate a Public Swimming Pool or Spa - Liverpool Plains Shire Council - New South Wales

Description

You need to notify the council if you operate a public swimming pool or spa. 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.

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