Swimming Pools

Where can I apply for a permit to build a swimming pool?

What are the setbacks for a swimming pool?

  • Setbacks are a minimum of 10 feet from any property line, measured to the water's edge.
  • All mechanical equipment muts also be at least 5 feet from the side and rear property lines. 
  • Mecklenburg County Code Enforcement and Mecklenburg County Environmental Health have additional requirements.
  • Homeowner's Associations may have additional restrictions

Is a swimming pool impervious?

  • The water surface of a pool would not count toward the impervious use for the lot, but the edging of the pool and any patio would count toward the impervious use for the lot.

Where can I find additional information?
