In accordance with State Government regulations, Singleton Council is developing a pool inspection program in conjunction with the community. Council is proposing that all pools will be inspected over the next three years, with random audits to occur thereafter. The inspections will look at safety requirements such as fencing in a bid to keep everyone safe from risks associated with pools and water and reduce the incidence of drownings.
Council is also proposing inspections will incur a $150 fee in the first instance, and a $100 fee is a follow-up inspection is required.
Singleton pool owners are invited to have a say on how the program should be run. A public forum will be held at Singleton Civic Centre on Tuesday 5 December 2017 from 6pm for you to find out more, ask questions and provide feedback. Everyone is welcome to come along.
An information letter has been distributed to all Singleton pool owners on Council's database. The information letter can also be viewed here.
