A building permit is required prior to construction of all above ground and in-ground swimming pools, hot tubs, and similar structures. Portable spas that simply plug in may not require a permit. All in-ground pools must have a 4 foot high fence with a locking gate.
All above-ground pools which are two to four feet in depth need to have a fence with a locking gate. Above ground pools over four feet do not need a fence, however they must have a removable ladder. For more information regarding the fees or permit applications, please contact the Permitting Office, located at 3101 McCully Road, Allison Park, PA from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, or call the department at 412-486-0400 Extension 1304.
