Do I need a permit to build a fence?

Probably. The construction of a fence does not require a permit, however most fences encroach into an easement and there are also zoning requirements to consider. To ensure compliance with all codes, we advise you to apply for a permit here.

If it happens that no permit is required, you will then be notified as such. Further questions can be directed to 317-595-3461.
