Do I need a permit for a fence?

Fences are regulated by Section 2-50 (n) of the City's Land Development Code and require a permit. A survey showing the location of the proposed driveway is required.  


All fencing must be installed with the finished side facing the adjacent lot. Fences used as pool barriers must meet the requirement of the Florida Building Code 4501.17.
