Swimming Pools

 

 

A swimming pool is any structure intended for swimming or recreational bathing that is intended to contain water of 24” deep.  This includes in-ground, above ground, and on-ground swimming pools (including bladder or inflatable pools sold at stores), hot tubs, spas, “Jacuzzi” or other whirlpools.

 

All swimming pools shall comply with all yard requirement setbacks in all Zoning Districts other than the R2 District which can be within ten (10) feet of the side and rear yard lot lines.

 

All swimming pools shall be completely surrounded by a fence or a barrier at least 48 inches in height above the finished ground level measured on the side of the barrier away from the pool.  Gates and doors in such barriers shall be self- closing and self- latching.    

 

 

Prior to installation, residents should complete a Building/Zoning Permit Application (including a plot plan of where the pool will be located and the manufactures installation guidelines for the pool) and submit that to the Township Zoning Officer for review and approval.
