Some economists are warning of tougher times, but thankfully that doesn’t seem to be the case in relation to residential swimming pool development application (DA) numbers. June 2013 saw 787 DAs logged nationally, a significant increase from the same period in 2012 where 629 DAs were logged.

Western Australia saw the highest level of DAs across the country with 232 applications being processed. This figure is more than double the number of DAs processed in 2012 when 112 applications were lodged in the same month.

New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia/Northern Territory also received notable increases in DA numbers in comparison to June 2012. NSW was up from 211 to 229, Qld up from 54 to 80 and SA/NT from 58 to 81.

Victoria was the only state during this period to see a decrease compared to the same time last year when 194 DAs were received compared to 165 in 2013.

Across the country, 70 DAs were received for commercial swimming pools, which was down on the 136 DAs received in 2012, but still a healthy figure.
