Thank you for your query. Is this a boundary fence?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.


If this is a boundary fence and it is less than 1.8m in height, you do not need the permission of your neighbour and do not need to give your neighbour any notice that the fence will be erected provided it is erected along your side of the boundary line.

I hope this answers your questions. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.

if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks
