What is the maximum height of a fence a person can put

This answer was rated:

What is the maximum height of a fence a person can put around their property?
My neighbour has a fence which is some 8 ft tall, but I thought the limit was around 6?
The fence is in the back garden, to the left of our property (we live in a semi detached house)
This is for Somerset, England.


In brief, you are correct. 2 metres. Or 6ft in old money.

You can report the neighbour to the council.
