Build or Remove a Pool

If you want to build or remove a swimming pool, you will need to get permission and approvals from Council. Call us on (02) 4227 7111 to talk about what you'll need to do.

You will also need to register your new pool on the NSW Swimming Pool Register. See our Pool Registration page for details.

Build a pool or spa

You will need permission to build a swimming pool or spa. You will also need approved swimming pool fencing.

Talk to us about your proposed swimming pool or spa before you start this process by calling (02) 4227 7111.

Remove a pool or spa

Any pool or spa that needs approval to be installed will need approval to be removed.

Portable pools do not usually need approval to be removed. If you're not sure, call us on (02) 4227 7111 for advice.
