    "Evening, your fence can be what you want it to be but if you start going over the 7ft Mark you’ll have to start getting concrete posts made specially. Thanks, Callum."

    "The law stipulates that a fence cannot exceed 2 metres in height. If you need it taller then you will need planning permission."

    "A fence can be 9ft max I’d say but make sure the taller you go the more secure so ideally concrete posts and gravel boards."

    "A fence can be a maximum of 8 ft in a residential area.
    This can be a full height fence or lower fence with trellis.
    A hedge though has no set height unless a neighbour complains about lack of light."
