Outdoor swimming pool

Planning permission is not usually required to install an outdoor domestic swimming pool as a pool is often considered a garden project.

However, it is always recommended that you check with your Local Planning Authority, particularly if your property or the surrounding area has any of the following classifications:

  • Designated land
  • National park
  • Greenbelt land
  • Listed building
  • Conservation area
