Swimming Pool Permit

When installing a pool it is important that property owners are aware of all of the rules and regulations that are applicable.

Swimming Pool Building Permit Application

The pool permit process is started with submission of a pool permit application. This application along with the accompanying drawings is reviewed for compliance and once all of the requirements has been satisfied a pool permit is issued. Please note! If you use Chrome to fill out the PDF pool permit application, it will mix up the information into different fields.  Please download the form and open it with PDF software that is not Chrome. 

Swimming pool permit applications can be submitted to [email protected]

Other Requirements:

  • An inground pool requires a Lot Grading Plan. Please submit this with your application.
  • A clearance may be required from other jurisdictions.

Swimming Pool Building Permit Inspections

Once the permit is issued all required inspections can be booked by contacting 905-356-7521 extension 4251/4285 or email [email protected].

Swimming Pool Bylaw

A new Swimming Pool By-law was passed by Council in the spring of 2014.  The new by-law establishes regulations that are applicable for all above ground, in ground and seasonal pools installed in the City of Niagara Falls.
