Building a swimming pool is not a trivial project. It demands your full attention, and requires time for reflection and lengthy administrative procedures.

Steps to building a swimming pool

Before you can enjoy the benefits of your in-ground pool, you need to determine your budget and assess the feasibility of the work in terms of the space available in your garden. Building a shell swimming pool can take a long time, so you’ll need to take into account a number of administrative formalities to ensure that your pool is in place on the desired date.

Administrative steps for building a swimming pool

  • Declaration of work

The latter will depend on the size of your pool. For small pools (10m2 maximum), this will not be compulsory, while seasonal pools such as above-ground pools will not be subject to these obligations either. For swimming pools between 10 and 100m2, a declaration of works is compulsory, using the CERFA 13 703*06 form.

  • Building permits

You can apply for a building permit instead of a declaration of works, using the CERFA 13 406*06 form.
