Do I need a permit to install a fence on my property?

Yes. A fence permit is only required when a fence is installed or replaced. When applying for a fence permit the following items are needed:

  • Length and height
  • A recent Plat of Survey
  • Two copies of the Site Plan showing the proposed fence location
  • A signed copy of the Application for Accessory Structure Permit

It typically takes one to three working days to issue a fence permit once an application is received. The fence permit fee is $50 and covers the permit review and all inspections.
