I want to install or replace a pool

A Building Permit is required prior to installing a swimming pool and its associated barrier and, in most cases, when replacing an existing pool or barrier.

When replacing a pool or barrier, please be aware that the rules may have changed since your pool was originally installed, meaning your existing barrier may no longer be compliant. See What are the rules? for more information.
