Before installing your water feature it is wise to contact your local council to ascertain whether your planned water feature complies with and regulations or guidelines currently in place.
Before installing your water feature it is wise to contact your local council to ascertain whether your planned water feature complies with any regulations or guidelines currently in place. Regulations may apply to such things as water depth, wall height or pool fencing or you may require a building permit to construct your water feature. Regulations and guidelines can vary greatly between each municipality therefore it is sensible to contact your local council and enquire for yourself before relying on the word of friends, family or tradespeople. Ultimately YOU will be held responsible if regulations have not been adhered to where required.
You may be required to submit plans to your local zoning department detailing the size, shape depth and proposed location of your water feature to have them approved BEFORE works commence. Where required, it is crucial to have approval in writing before proceeding with construction as councils have the right to insist that our feature is demolished if construction begins before final approval is granted.
Below is a list of websites and telephone numbers to assist you:
It is important to remember that where regulations or guidelines do not exist, that common sense and caution are always exercised and that any construction complies with current Australian Standards for building.
