    fencing question!

    we live on a corner plot and our back garden is over looked by houses across the cul-de-sac, as we live on a slight hill our fence is 6ft high from the road side but only 3.5ft high from our garden side ( does this make sense?) are we legally allowed to put a higher fence up? our fence is a brick one with curved wooden panels slotted in, would we be allowed to put higher panels up? thanks to anyone who answers x

    sounds similiar to our house and we were told we could not go higher than 6ft by law.

    could we put a treliss (cant spell sorry:oops:) up and add climbing plants?

    good evening
    i use to be in the building
    i believe anything over 6ft had to have planning permission.
    hope this helps
    speak to your local council and explain the situation they might come up with an idea.
    hope this helps

    our plan is to add trees to try and get some privacy as we are also corner plot and dont have many options unfortunately hth

    yeah...over 6ft needs planning, and its measured from the ground, not from the nearest hill !

    its a sensible rule though....do you know how much force a 1 square metre of fence produces in a gale.........

    its 6ft for a reason !
