SingleFenceWorld… height regs, I'm confused!
Significant level changes at new developments would be part of the planning, so fencing etc would be part of that consent.
How would your fence affect your neighbours – if you’ve spoken to them and it’s not going to cause any issues then JFDI. If you’re building up 5′ outside their sunny kitchen window then sticking a 2m fence above that, they might get a bit shirty and call in the planners.

Thanks for the link, looks like what I need to be reading, shall check that out.
No neighbours yet, was a bit of woodland but now currently cleared land that will be developed on in due course. Talking to the guy who now owns the land but he’s got bigger issues to deal with than our fence!Posted 4 years ago
So I think the regs around fence height stipulate that it can be up to 2m from ground level, based on the original ground level before any groundwork.
Our garden is quite uneven and on a peculiar slope so we’ve been thinking about landscaping and levelling. If I do this then the ground could well be raised 5ft at some points on the boundary, and lowered by a couple of feet at other points. Would this mean that my maximum allowable fence height would be 1ft at some point and 8ft at others? (Basically following the existing slope.) Also based on that original ground level if I build a fence a few feet back from the boundary then it would be a several metres higher up than a boundary fence!
And what about new developments where there is considerable groundwork? Do fences need to be based on the original ground level? Or is it all dealt with as part of the planning application?Posted 4 years ago
