1metre fence next to a 2metre fence?

Postby nuttyports » Mon Jul 28, 2014 9:05 pm

Can someone please let me know whether I can put a 1m fence in front of a 2m fence? My problem is I have a 2m fence adjacent to the highway, someone has complained! To get over the planning refusal (which we have been told is likely) can I put a 1m fence in front of it? - is there any law saying I can't? We have left just about enough space for this - it would look ridiculous but I'd rather the higher fence as our house is the last house on the highway down a county lane and our back garden is on the highway.

Hi nutty,

a 1m fence would be okay under permitted development, but I don't think installing one would alter the fact you have a 2m adjacent to highway (ie near to - not next to).

otherwise the legislation would be pointless wouldn't it...

could you modify the fence so it could be considered a very shallow shed? (I'm not asking I'm suggesting)

Kind regards, Mac
