Chesterfield Virginia Pools Setback Laws and Regulations

For over 10 years now, we at River Pools and Spas have installed dozens and dozens of fiberglass pools throughout the Chesterfield and Midlothian area of Central Virginia. And with this experience, we've also had to deal with their county many, many times when getting pool permits passed through the zoning and building departments. So for those of you looking to get a swimming pool from this county, here are a few things to know:

Chesterfield Virginia Pools Setbacks:

  • From well/septic the pool must be at least 20' away
  • From property lines it must be at least 8' away
  • From house it must be 10' away

To apply for the permit, you'll need (2) plats, (2) sets of pool plans, a pool affidavit, and a building permit application.

Also, keep in mind that when you apply for the swimming pool permit in Chesterfield, you also need to attain your fence and electrical permit at the same time.

Finally, if you're on well and septic it will likely take 2-3 days to get the permit, otherwise you can typically walk it through.
