Does your pool fencing meet the strict new City of Gold Coast council and Queensland Building and Construction Commission safety standards?
Maintaining pool fences and safety barriers is one of the most important ways to reduce the risk of drowning for young children. As a pool owner you are responsible for maintaining your pool barriers, meeting City of Gold Coast pool fencing regulations and safety standards and fixing damaged fence panels immediately. Failure to comply with the new legislation can result in fines of up to $19437 (165 Penalty Units).
You can find out more information about your responsibilities on the http://www.goldcoast.qld.gov.au/planning-and-building/swimming-pool-fencing-3873.html
Under new laws passed in 2010 you had until 30 November 2015 to meet the new stricter standards (or earlier if you sell or rent your house). Reports suggest that thousands of Gold Coast households are still not complying with these standards.
