    Fence Height Requirements:

    It is required that a fence surrounding a pool must be at least 1200mm from top to bottom.  Additionally, any branches that are able to be climbed, that are over the pool, must be cut back.  If there is a garden that will cause a reduced height of the fence, the garden must be move away from the it.

     

    Fences With An Adjoining Boundary:

    Windows:
