Vicmap implementation of GDA2020

Vicmap Pools dataset

Victorians are required to register their private swimming pools and spas with their local councils by 1 November 2020.

To assist councils in their implementation of this registration requirement, we have developed a statewide dataset of pool and spa locations, identified at a property boundary level.

We engaged the Victorian Centre for Data Insights to create this dataset. It was produced using statewide imagery from our Coordinated Imagery Program and machine learning to identify pools and spas across each local government area.

This dataset will allow councils to inform or build upon existing pool and spa register. This will ensure more registrations and compliant safety barriers – an aspect of the registration requirement – across the state.

All necessary legal requirements have been adhered to in collecting the data and providing notification to the public. Please see the Privacy Collection Statement notice below.

How to access the data

To access the data, Councils will have to:

Privacy Collection Statement

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) is currently using spatial data to identify the location of pools and spas across the State.

The purpose of this work is to assist local government to comply with State legislation. This work will support safety compliance and reduce potential pool safety incidents.

The Department is committed to protecting personal information in accordance with the principles of the Victorian privacy laws.

Aerial imagery is being used to help inform local government about the presence of pools located across the State.

The location of identified pools will be made available to local governments in Victoria for the sole purpose of aiding local government in building the required pool and spa register to meet new State legislation.
