This webinar is approx. 45 minutes long.

Pre-schoolers drowning in pools in NZ is real. A short look at any given summer month will show you the sad stats. There have been rules around pool barriers since 1987 and on 1 January 2017 the rules changed again. Here we are in the middle of summer - do your ratepayers know that even the pool they bought on boxing days sales may need fencing off from their home and the public?

It may surprise you to learn that pool covers do not comply and that councillor exemptions can no longer be given!

Just how much say do you have over your building department and what are legal implications of what you say to the ratepayer about what they need to do?

You will learn about this and more in this engaging, informative and interactive webinar where robust discussion will be encouraged.

Learning objectives

By the end of this webinar you will be able to:

  • recall changes to rules made on 1 January 2017;
  • know which spas and pools need fencing; and
  • be able to speak to the issue of exemptions and council enforcement.
