Swimming Pool Permits

You must have a permit before you start

A permit must be obtained and fees paid prior to the commencement of installation of pools of water for swimming, bathing or wading which is capable of retaining a water depth equal or greater than 600mm (23 5/8") at any point. Any pool that is commenced before obtaining a permit is subject to, but not limited to, a non-compliance fee as dictated in the Fees and Charges By-law. Other penalties may apply for non-compliance.

If a deposit is required it is refunded, subject to any deductions for damage to Town property, non-compliance to grading and landscaping to Town requirements.

Verify the location

Approval for the location and setback requirements of a pool and related equipment from property lines is obtained from the Planning Department. Contact the Planning Department to verify your plan complies with the current Zoning By-law.

By-law and Safety – no water before inspection

It is the responsibility of the owner to make sure that no person fills the pool with water until the pool fence enclosure has been erected according to the Pool Fence By-Law 08-59 and has been inspected to the satisfaction of the Town of Grimsby.
