If you plan to build a fence on a corner property, you may need consent before commencing work. This is usually required before submitting a building permit application.
You will need to apply for consent if the corner fence is:
- more than 1m high above the footpath
- and located within 9m of the property boundary lines.
It is your responsibility to check any requirements you may need to meet when building a fence. If consent is not required, you may need other approvals such as a planning permit. Visit our Fences page for more information.
