If the fence you want to put up is 30 inches or taller, you’ll need to get a building permit from the Department of Planning and Permitting.
Anything lower than 30 inches does not require a permit.
What you need to know
Before you start construction or get a permit:
- The minimum fee to obtain a building permit is $18
- If you belong to a homeowner’s association, you should check the association’s rules to see if there are any restrictions regarding the type and size of fences allowed
