No more permits for fences, says The Man


The City of Orlando will consider exempting certain types of fences from their permitting process.

According to Florida Building Code, single-family residential fences that are six-feet in height or less have no specific construction standards in place. The City’s Building Official has determined that as such, fences that fall under that height restriction shouldn’t require a permit.

Despite that move, fences will still need to comply with City Code and will continue to be enforced via the Code Enforcement division. Encroachment on adjacent property will continue to be a civil matter between property owners.

The City of Orlando issued 1,545 fence permits in 2018 and Permitting Services expects to lose less than $88,208 a year from the move.

This item will be heard during the April 8 City Council meeting.
