How high for a fence?


By Feefee1

CLEVELAND, United Kingdom Gb

I moved into a new build house, theres bungalows out the back they are higher than us and the fence is only 5ft high which i thought should be 6ft. Also between me and the girl next door there is only a 3ft fence, we dont have any privacy at all. what i really want to know is can anyone give me advice as the local authority is coming round tomorrow and all of us in the houses and the bungalows need to try and get them to give us our privacy back but what do we say to them



Ask if you can put a trellis on top of the fences as you understand that fences can be 6' high without planning permission! Then you can grow nice climbers on them..

I think it is 2 metres which will give you a couple more inches!!!
