During a previous investigation, a citizen had complained about the harmful effects derived from the presence of an outdoor spa, in her neighbor’s backyard. Arrondissement Le Sud-Ouest had then informed us that they had no By-Law governing the installation of spas in backyards. Our office was very surprised, considering the growing popularity of spas, in backyards.

After due consideration, the borough confirmed that it would modify its By-Laws so as to oversee the installation of spas, in backyards: backyard spas are now subject to similar standards and requirements as pools.

An information sheet was also prepared by the borough in order to explain the norms to respect as regards to pools and spas: this sheet is available on the borough Web site.
