(A) No structure to be used as a swimming pool which is more than two feet in depth, whether privately owned or owned by an association of persons, shall be constructed unless the owner applies for and procures a building permit for the construction from the Building Inspector. All applications for a building permit shall be accompanied by detailed plans and specifications of the swimming pool and shall show fences, walls, and gates.
(B) The Building Inspector shall not issue a building permit unless the structure shall be completely enclosed by a closely woven fence or wall, or other suitable enclosure four feet in height, so as to be reasonably impenetrable by children and has a self-closing and self-latching gate four feet in height, so that the swimming pool is completely surrounded and enclosed by such fencing. Elevated or portable pools with heights at least four feet above the ground shall have self-latching and self-closing gates on all stairs, ramps or ladders used for ingress and egress, and the stairs, ramps, or ladders shall be otherwise reasonably impenetrable by children.
