No permits are required to build a fence or put up a hedge, however they are required to comply
with the R.M of Taché Zoning by-law No. 10-2017. In addition, depending on where the property is located, there may be some restrictions if an Agreement has been registered with the property.
If there is no agreement registered with the property, than the rules are as follows:
• The erection, construction of the maintenance of gates, fences, or other non-structural means of enclosures must be less than 6 feet (1.8 metres) in height in any rear or side yard, however, if you are wanting to build higher than permitted you can apply for a Variance with the Planning Department;
• Fences and Hedges, except as provided in the R.M of Taché Zoning by-law No. 10-2017 Section 3.1.3 , may be located in any front yard (front of house) to a maximum height of 4 feet (1.2 metres);
• Fences may be build up to the property line, but it is the responsibility of the property owner to accurately locate their property line or to obtain a survey of the property if unsure;
• Under NO circumstances can you build the fence off your property line.
