Private FACILITIES 

The Zoning By-law regulates the location of in-ground and above-ground swimming pools and any related filters, pumps or similar operating equipment. The Pool Fence By-law specifies that a fence must be erected and maintained around a swimming pool having a depth of more than 24". The Pool Fence By-law sets out the standards for the construction and maintenance of pool fences and gates in pool fences. A permit must be obtained prior to excavating or erecting a swimming pool and prior to erecting the pool fence. The pool fence must be constructed and approved by an inspector from the Building Division before water is put into the pool.

Application forms and information regarding the Pool Fence By-law are available from the Building Division located in the Victoriaville Civic Centre. Information regarding the Zoning By-law regulations applicable to swimming pools is available from the Planning Division.
