Safety Laws up for Review: Swimming Pools

I was surprised to read in the Advertiser today that of 538 swimming pools inspected by Unley Council since 2009 that 299 of them did not pass safety checks. While this is an extraordinary number of inspections to that done by other similar councils the non compliance level is alarming.Under the current Development Act it is not mandatory  for councils to undertake safety  inspections. However, changes to legislation under review may see a greater role for Councils in more regular inspections.
