Is planning permission required for a swimming pool?

A private open air swimming pool in the back garden of a domestic property in the UK does not usually require planning permission unless the property is listed, sited in a conservation area or area of outstanding natural beauty or the pool is to have a permanent enclosure, where planning may be required.

If the pool is to be an indoor swimming pool and complies with your permitted development rights, again planning permission will not be required but building regulation approval will be necessary.

We recommend that you contact your local authority in order to check the requirements of local legislation before proceeding with construction
