New Wall

New Wall

I want to remove a 2.5m hedge and replace with a 2m wall. It is more than 20m from a road but adjacent to a public footpath. I dont think I require planning permission but will I require building warrant?

  1. Linda.

    If the wall is more than 20 metres from your principle elevation boundary (front entrance normally off street) and under 2 metres in height you do not require planning permission. Unless you live in a conservation area or listed building in which case you would require planning permission.

    If a wall is over 1.2 metres in height it will require a building warrant this increases to 2 metres if it is a fence.

    For more information on walls and fences visit our wall and fences advice page http://doineedpermission.co.uk/planning-permission-fences-walls .

    Thanks for using Do I Need Permission
