Is a permit required to install a pool, spa or hot tub?
All swimming pools, hot tubs, and spas in Onslow County, defined by the Code of Ordinances as permanent outdoor structures (in-ground, above-ground, and on-ground) intended for swimming or bathing that contain water over 24 inches deep, are required to be completely surrounded by a fence or solid wall not less than four feet in height.

A Zoning Permit is required for these structures and Building and Electrical Permits are required if the pool contains water over 24 inches. Please contact our office for more information.
