Do I need a permit for a fence?

Yes, when installing a new fence, removing or replacing an existing fence. Chain links, wood, wrought iron, retaining walls 2 feet and higher or garden wall 3 feet and higher require a building permit. 

Prior to the issuance of a permit, provide a dimensioned site plan, which includes the construction details and location of the fence or wall location.
