Do I Need a Permit to Install or Repair a Fence?

Permits are not required for installing or repairing a fence unless the fence acts as a pool barrier or the fence will be higher than six (6) feet. If the latter, a variance will be required.

All non-pool barrier fences must comply with the Borough's Fencing Regulations (click here). The regulations for pool barrier fencing are included in the Pool Packet (click here).


TIP: You can place the fence up to your property line, however you may want to consider installing your fence a small distance in from your property line. This allows you to maintain the fence without trespassing on your neighbor's property.
