Required Pool Barrier Permits In Australia

If you planning on installing a new pool fence in Australia, you will likely require a permit. The Building Act 1993 (the Act) and Building Regulations 2018 (the Regulations) legislate that all building work is subject to the issuing of a building permit, unless an exemption exists for the proposed work under the Regulations. This includes some minor alterations, demolitions and repair or maintenance work. When it comes to sorting out your building permits, our glass pool fencing experts can assist you in acquiring appropriate permits for your project with an easy & fast turnaround.


Applying For A Permit

Organising and liaising with surveyors, councils, inspectors and other unfamiliar industry services can be daunting. This is especially true if you don’t know where to start. Luckily, the team at Affordable Glass Pool Fencing are experienced, custom pool fencing professionals who are able to plan and design your custom glass fencing, ensuring everything meets regulatory requirements/council requirements. 

Affordable Glass Pool Fencing are also able to consult with relevant building surveyors and industry bodies on your behalf, ensuring all that is left for you to do is sit back and relax.

All we need from you is some photos of your area, a simple plan of the new fence you are looking to install, and likely just a few minutes on the phone.  From there, we can note any potential additional approvals or compliance you'll need to attend to. 

That's all it takes for Affordable Glass Pool Fencing to start turning dreams into reality.


The Permit Process

Proposed Work - Please provide our team with any correspondence from local council regarding pool fence compliance, along with photos of the proposed pool/ spa area.

Application - We will help prepare and submit your building permit application. Our expertise will ensure this is done correctly and efficiently with minimal fuss.

Approval - Once we have submitted the building permit on your behalf, you should expect building approval within 2 - 4 weeks.


How long will my building permit be valid for?

Regarding building permits, work must commence within 12 months of the building permit issue date. This means we can organise your permit for you well in advance. Once work has commenced, your permit will be valid for a further 6 months. However, it won't take us that long to confirm your product requirements, along with on-site delivery ready for you to install.


Why Do I Need A Building Permit?

A building permit ensures:

  1. Adequate documentation is prepared to enable compliant construction of the proposed building
  2. An independent review of building documentation occurs
  3. Key stages of the work are independently inspected
  4. Your building is independently assessed as suitable for occupation.

Other benefits for owners include compliance with building legislation prior to building work commencing.


What happens when the work has been done?

Once the work is completed, our inspector will book a time with you to sign off and issue a certificate of final inspection.
