What are the setback requirements for pools?

In-ground pools must be located at least 20 feet from leach fields and at least 10 feet from septic tanks.  Above-ground pools don’t have specific required setbacks from leach fields and septic tanks, but it is recommended that they not be placed on top of the leach field.

All pools must adhere to Leicester Zoning Bylaw requirements for Accessory Structures (Section 1.5), which prohibits accessory structures in front yards (between the front line of the nearest building wall and the front lot line) and requires that accessory structures be located at least 10 feet away from side & rear property lines, and at least 10 feet away from other structures.
