Mornington, Boroondara, Geelong top pool builders in the state
Tuesday, 21 October 2014
As Victoria moves into summer, new figures from the Victorian Building Authority (VBA) show that 10 municipalities account for almost half of the swimming pool and spa permits issued in Victoria in the past year.
In the 12 months to September 2014, building surveyors issued 6,498 building permits for swimming pools and spas in Victoria. Of these, 2,784 involved projects in Boroondara (491), Mornington Peninsula (491), Greater Geelong (316), Bayside (312), Casey (245), Stonnington (202), Greater Bendigo (196), Glen Eira (189), Manningham (177), and Yarra Ranges (165).
The VBA’s Director of Technical and Regulation, Jarrod Edwards, said the number of permits issued is a good guide to the popularity of pools with Victorian homeowners.
