  2. The number overdue (i.e. safety barriers that were last inspected* prior to 1 July 2020).

This information will need to be provided by Thursday, 1 August 2024.

Should all relevant pools within your district not have been inspected within the mandatory four-year period, you are encouraged to provide a short explanation as to why this may have occurred.
