You may require permission to erect, construct or alter a fence on private property. A fence is any wall or similar structure, irrespective of material content, located on or near a common boundary. It includes a front fence to a property but does not include any structural part of a building.
A building licence or planning permission is required in certain circumstances.
Please consult directly with the council to ascertain whether special permission is required to erect a fence, and also whether there are any specific requirements regarding the height and setback of the fence or relating to the materials and standards of construction.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
