Q: Do I need a fence around my child's small backyard pool?
A: It depends. “Screening,” which in our ordinance equates to a fence, is required for all above ground pools 24” or greater in depth. A screen canopy over or around the pool does not satisfy the ordinance. An actual fence is required. The ordinance was written because your safety, and the safety of your children is paramount to the Town of Leland.
Article VI, Section 30-212.e (3) Screening:
All above ground pools shall be completely screened on all sides. Such screening shall meet the following standards:
a. Screening shall be constructed of durable material, either wood, chain link, wrought iron, or other material designed for such purpose.
b. The exterior walls of a house or building may be incorporated as a portion of such screening to create a fully enclosed area around the above ground pool.
c. Screening shall have a height of not less than four feet from the outside approach and no opening greater than four inches.
d. All equipment included in the operation of the above ground pool shall be located within the screened area.
Have more questions about pool fencing? Click on the ordinance link above, or contact the Economic and Community Development Department via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 910-971-3390.
