Fencing RegulationsThe City does not require fences to be erected between two residential properties, unless one of the following applies:
- the property has an in-ground swimming pool
- the property is designated a Residential Child Care District with an outdoor play area.
Residential fence heights are regulated to a height of not more than 1.2 metres in the front yard or between the main building and the roadway, and a height of 2 metres elsewhere on the property. The use of barbed wire, electrified wire and barbed tape obstacle are prohibited fencing materials in residential areas.
For a detailed summary of fencing heights and prohibited materials please see the Zoning Bylaw.
A dispute concerning fencing between two properties is strictly a civil matter between both property owners.
