Note (added 11/08/2022): Please note that this determination incorrectly refers to section 450A of the Building Act 2004 as a compliance pathway for the pool barrier in this determination. The acceptable solution provided for in section 450A was revoked by way of Gazette notice on 27 April 2017. As the determination does not conclude that the pool barrier was compliant via the acceptable solution in section 450A, the outcome of the determination is not affected.
This determination considers the compliance of an existing pool barrier to the extent required under section 162C of the Building Act.
The matter turns on whether the area enclosed by the pool barrier can properly be considered the "immediate pool area" and whether the doors opening into the immediate pool area comply.
