You can get set back info from the 'zoning' office.

I believe 8' from the side and 15' from the rear, but don't quote me on it. Call the zoning office to be sure

Bravo Jvelte!

SETBACKS – All structures must conform to the following setbacks:
Waterfront and dry lots shall have the setbacks as follows;
Canal or rear lot line: 20 feet
Front lot line: 25 feet
Side lot line: 7.5 feet
Pool cage: 15 feet

The side lot line and rear lot line setbacks shall not apply to a garage located 50 feet or more from the minimum building setback line, except that on corner lots, no structure shall be permitted nearer than 20 feet to the front line of the said corner lot nor nearer than 15 feet to the side street lot line. Any additional buildings or structures constructed must also conform to the minimum lot setbacks and material requirements.

Here's a copy of a pool permit app. for Charlotte county.

As one builder to another: "Measure twice - Cut once"
Make the call and find out for sure.
Site Plan Review Process

Also you could call a local civil engineering firm and they can also tell you of any exceptions, and other items that you may want to consider that may be peculiar to the Rotunda Area.

Good Luck with that pool project!

Also be advised that if you live in a community with power poles in the rear, any drops running from the pole to your house have to be moved if the wires go over the pool area.

Did you call to get the info? Cause I pulled the above info off the county website. Hmmm...strange.
