I am planning on taking out a fairly large in-ground pool, and building a garage in its place, and possibly part of it will have a new house built on it as well - the plans are not finalised.. The pool dates back to the late 60's early 70's and is all concrete. Because I am planning to build on it, does it need to be removed in any particular way - ie Completely??? Or can it be filled in and relevant areas for footings be dug out properly? Is getting permits for buildings to be built over an old pool made more complex in areas were pools once were? Is a permit required for pool removal or just notification to the council?
I am in Melbourne - Whitehorse CC.
