Do I need a permit for a swimming pool?

Yes, the setbacks for a pool are dependent on the size. Pools under 600 square feet can be up to 5 feet from the side and rear property lines. Pools that are 600 square feet and larger must meet setbacks based on the zoning classification of the property. The setbacks apply to the pool depression of an in-ground pool and not to the concrete slab surrounding the pool.
