Obtaining a Pool Permit in Volusia County, Florida
Every county in Florida as well as most cities have their own permitting system. While they may be similar, each one requires slightly different information.
In Volusia County, before starting the permit application we first verify the zoning regulation for each property individually. Volusia County requires that you make sure the swimming pool is within the setbacks zoned for that property before we build.
The Volusia County permit center also requires impact fees to be paid before acquiring the permit. Projects that are located anywhere in Volusia County and within city boundaries will be assessed a road impact fee and a school impact fee. In the unincorporated county of Volusia, impact fees are assessed for fire, local parks, and district parks. Projects in the city of DeBary, Lake Helen, Pierson, and Oak Hill will be assessed a fire impact fee for municipal funding. From time to time there are changes to fee schedules and procedures.
