Re: Do I need planning permission for a boundary fence?

Just been out to measure the footpath, I guess it depends where you measure as it is not consistent, but where i measured it was 1.7m so for argument sake worst case it could be 1.6 to 1.8m depending on where you measure I've taken further pics and also marked where i intend to put up the 2m fence,...

Re: Change of use to garden

I purchased a small segment of land to add to my garden intending to install an annexe for a relative. It was overgrown / unused but had been part of a derelict farmyard. I know I have to apply for change of use but should I be applying to construct the build at the same time or just change of use ...

Re: Boundary query

So we have moved into a detached house next door to another detached house. Our side wall of garage we are unable to access due to neighbour having this as their boundary wall so they have fenced the remainder at the front and continued into the rear garden. We are not sure how long their fencing h...

Re: Do I need planning permission for a boundary fence?

Yep its referring to the actual concrete footpath not the actual strip of land within my boundary this confirms the minimum width as being 1.8m - how wide is the metalled footpath? (looks less than 1.8m in your photo, but looks can be deceiving...) Not sure why you are continuing to flog this point...

Re: Boundary fence

We moved to our house 20 years ago. The existing 3ft high fence between us and our neighbours needed repairing. According to the deeds it is our fence so we decided to raise the height to 6ft but leave roughly the last third as 3ft. Our neighbour approached us and said would we mind if they made th...

Re: Do I need planning permission for a boundary fence?

I contacted the council public rights of way dept who have confirmed it's a public footpath based on the definitive map :( Looks like I'm going to have to apply for planning, not confident given that the neighbour has a 1m palisade picket fence on their boundary, so it could be argued its not in ke...

Re: Moving a fence to edge of boundary.

I changed my plans regarding the fence and instead cleared the land of bramble and hazel bushes and planted laurels along the outer border so that I can build a summer house in my garden whose east wall will replace one of the fence panels and a window will look out onto the strip. However somebody...

Re: Single detached garage - Planning permission nightmare!

Hi justanotherday, Having looked at the site, there would be no public right of way across this strip of unadopted land as it would operate as a shared private drive for the occupants of the properties at numbers 5,7 and 9 herein lies the issue - the council’s view is you’re proposing to build on s...

Wow, thanks for the very quick and thorough reply. I hadn't expected such thorough and valuable comments when I posted this, especially not for free. So thanks to all that have replied. Highways.

Re: Do I need planning permission for a boundary fence?

I postponed doing anything last year re the fence. I have been doing further research and found the attached as I'm planning on doing the work this summer As the footpath is maintable at public expense does this mean it is not the council's responsibility and therefore I could build a fence on my b...
