    Thanks for the opportunity to provide feedback about this proposal. Can just say I am bewildered as to why anybody, in the middle of the worst water crisis in decades, anybody would consider putting in a backyard swimming pool.
    I would really like to see council ramp up any fees for swimming pool applications, along with the state govt ensuring that pools cannot be filled during water restrictions.

    I agree with Marie. If you want a pool, move house to a house with a pool. Further pool construction should be banned until we have a permanent solution to the water crisis.

    I support the application and totally disagree with the objectors as the arguments put forward are feeble to say the least.

    What gives them the right to deprive a family of enjoying the great amenity a pool provides a family!

    It can take years of planning to get to the DA stage and at the time the planning commenced, there were likely no water restrictions in play.

    Additionally, a responsible pool owner will know that once the pool is filled and well maintained, the water management an consumption side of the equation is not dissimilar to someone maintaining a garden. Are we to also ban all gardens in NSW.

    The drought is a natural phenomenon, one which our politicians have hopelessly planned for and let us down miserably.

    Let's get real people, whilst we all need to conserve our resources and be mindful of the environment, prohibition is not the solution and history evidences this doesn't work.

    The issue of Pool has clear guidelines and requests for permits to fill in the current water restrictions.
    I don’t see why we need to make a fuss about filling a pool when water suppliers have hundreds of water pipes fueling water into the streets because they are not maintained. This isn’t the forum for hating on everyday humans whom wish to enjoy a pool in their beautiful backyard. If anything. It means less people driving to the beach to relax over summer. That means less emissions...
