Does anyone know if you need special permission to build a pond in your back garden?

We have 4 ducks who have already packed their suitcases ready for life in sunnier climes but they want to know if they will have anywhere to swim once they get here.

Many thanks in advance!

Hi Wendy !No special permission for a pond (at least if it's not an olympic pond !!!) In case it would be something bigger you just have to fill a for in your local townhall, declaring you want to dig a watertank... That's all... but I'm sure your fancy ducks will stay reasonable about the size of their pool !!good luckSandrine
