If the new fence or wall borders or adjoins a public highway used for vehicles you may need planning permission if it is higher than 1 metre If you live in an area which has open planned front gardens there is likely to be a covenant restricting the erection of any fence or hedge to the front of the dwelling and you must therefore refer to the ... 【Get Price】

We live on a plot bordering a public footpath and require our garden landscaped as well as either a new 8ft panel fence or a brick wall (not sure which yet but open to ideas). The landscaping will involve clearance of a rockery removal of pond and well removal of trees and bushes flattening ground and planting of turfs and borders. 【Get Price】

That would normally be some way clear of a public footpath but it's not a legal requirement as far as I know; it's more that the footpath would *normally* be made with a verge - but many are not. I believe the actual limitation is the fence or wall height 1m if 'adjacent to a highway' or 2m otherwise (eg. back garden fences). 【Get Price】

The height of any wall or fence on your property can be 1.80 high with out planning as long as it is not in the front garden or the vision splay for traffic going or coming around the corner just make sure that the property/garden is yours before you move it as normally the fence would go against the pavement when it was put up in the first place 【Get Price】

Id like to tell them where to go but I dont own the land and the owners haven't discoutraged people. Bigger fools them. Anyway there is a public footpath in one of the fields right at the bottom. So if I put up the electric fence next to it I hang on signs. The doggy walkers dont stick to the path they instead wander all over the field. 【Get Price】

it is next to a highway used by vehicles (or the footpath of such a highway) and it would not exceed one metre in height (from ground level); or; it would not exceed two metres in height (from ground level) if elsewhere; or; if an existing fence wall or gate already exceeds the limits above that its height would not be increased. 【Get Price】
