What approvals do I need? - Swimming pool
|Description||A swimming pool is any excavation or structure that will contain more than 30cm of water.|
|Do I need approval?||
Planning Approval (also referred to as Development Approval) is not required for swimming pools proposed in a residential zoned area.
For swimming pools proposed in any other zone, planning approval is required. Should it be required, planning approval must be obtained prior to a building permit being issued.
A Building Permit is required prior to the construction of any swimming pool/spa that will contain more than 300mm (30cm) depth of water.
|What do I need to submit?||
Please refer to the City's DA Checklist - Residential Additions for a complete list of the information required to apply for planning approval.
Please refer to the City's Swimming Pools & Spas Information Sheet for a complete list of the information required to apply for a building permit.
