Permit Requirements for Construction of Fence
A fence permit is not required to replace an existing permitted fence. The replacement fence must be constructed at the same exact location and height as the existing permitted fence. To construct a new fence on a property, a fence permit is required. If the property owner has constructed a fence without a permit, please file a complaint with DPS by completing the online Complaint Form.

Online users who have additional questions and would like to be contacted by a departmental staff member may submit a request by clicking on the Create Service Request button below. Please complete all of the fields in the Contact Information section, provide the property address in the Service/Incident Address information section and provide a brief description of the request in the Brief Description field.
