Pool Heating/Filtering Equipment
Most of today's outdoor pools require external mechanical components in order to operate. Zoning by-law 225-2007 includes regulations governing the location of this equipment.
External heating, air conditioning and pool heating/filtering equipment may be located in any required yard, other than the front yard, provided it is located no closer than 0.61m away from any lot line (taken from subsection 4.1.6 - External Heating, Air Conditioning, and Pool Heating/Filtering Equipment)
Setbacks to Greenbelt Zones
If it is determined that the outdoor swimming pool is located on a property adjacent to a greenbelt zone, additional setback restrictions will apply. Firstly, it must be determined what type of Greenbelt zone the property is adjacent to - a base greenbelt zone (ie. G1, G2) or a greenbelt exception zone (ie. G1-1, G1-2 etc.). The specific requirements have been outlined within Table 126.96.36.199 - Minimum Setbacks to Greenbelt Zones .
Section 4.1.8 - Minimum Setbacks to Greenbelt Zones
188.8.131.52 The minimum setback for all buildings, structures, parking areas and swimming pools in Residential Zones to all lands zoned G1 or G2 Base Zone, shall be the greater of 5.0m or the required yard/setback. (0179-2018)
184.108.40.206 The setback for an outdoor swimming pool shall be measured from the inside wall of the swimming pool to a G1 or G2 Base Zone or a G1 or G2 Exception Zone. (0179-2018)
