Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
You are entitled to have a fence that is 2 meters high without planning permission
If your fence is within the height limits set by your local authority, when measured from the ground on which it stands (not from the level of the ground on your side of the fence).
Therefore if he has raised the height of his patio and the fence is MORE then 2 meters from the ground on which is stands, you will need planning permission
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
