FAQ's

Do I need a Building Permit for a Modular / Above Ground Pool or Outdoor Spa?

Yes, under Building Regulations 2006, any construction of a swimming pool or spa with a depth of greater than 300mm requires a Building Permit.

How long does it take to get a Building Permit?

Once we have compiled all the necessary items we generally anticipate that the Building Permit will come through within 1-2 weeks.

Why do certain fees vary from property to property?

While certain fees are prescribed by the State Government, many are not. Consequently, the local councils, water authorities etc have a right to charge what is deemed appropriate for the services they provide.

When can the Pool or Spa be used after the construction is complete?

After all the required inspections are carried out and approved, including the Safety Barriers, a Certificate of Final Inspection would be issued. At this point, you may then enjoy using the Pool and Spa.

What is the difference between a Planning Permit and a Building Permit?

A Planning Permit relates to the appropriate use of the land or building. Whereas a Building Permit relates to the structural stability and safety of the building works.
