Plan­ning reg­u­la­tions de­ter­mine the max­i­mum height of a fence de­pend­ing on where it is rel­a­tive to the house, neigh­bours, pub­lic foot­paths etc. the most com­mon fence height is six foot (1.8m), us­ing ei­ther a six-foot panel or a five-foot panel mounted on a gravel board which stops it com­ing in con­tact with the ground and rot­ting at the base. to en­sure your fence will meet plan­ning reg­u­la­tions, con­sult your lo­cal coun­cil web­site. Gen­er­ally, you won’t need plan­ning per­mis­sion to build a wall/fence more than two me­tres high or one me­tre where it ad­joins a road or foot­path. on an es­tate where gar­dens are open-plan or shared sur­faces, there may be re­stric­tions on mak­ing changes. con­sult your area plan­ning of­fice to see if this is the case.
