Regulated premises - public swimming pools or spas

You must register with Bayside Council if you operate a swimming pool or spa for public bathing or swimming, pay a fee, and be compliant at the time of routine inspections.  

You must also update us if your business changes name, proprietor, or ABN details. 

Public swimming pools and spas are provided for use by the public at: 

  • Clubs 
  • Workplaces 
  • Hotels, motels, guest houses, holiday units or similar facilities for the use of guests 
  • Schools 
  • Hospitals  
  • Private pools used for commercial purposes. 

We regularly inspect pool and spas used by the public to ensure they are following standards for health and safety.  

A registration fee applies to recover the costs of our inspection services.   

You could face a penalty for operating without registering with us.
