Pool Levy

The City of Melville is committed to pool safety.

Why am I billed for owning a pool?

The City of Melville is committed to assisting pool owners to keep their pool safe by providing a service that includes inspection and advice on pool safety and the legislative obligations.

If you receive a charge for a pool levy and you dont have a pool (sometimes a pool has been removed), please contact our pools officer on 1300 635 845 or by an online request.

Will my pool be inspected each year?

The legislative requirement is that each pool is inspected every four years and brought into compliance.  The City of Melville strategy is to complete 25% of all inspections each year. The annual pool levy charge is equal to one quarter of the cost of providing this service.  Additional inspections, such as when purchasing a property, are available upon request on a fee for service basis.
