When selecting fencing solutions for your development projects, it's vital to understand the specific compliance requirements and regulations. Safety standards, height restrictions, material guidelines, and other relevant factors should be carefully considered, as non-compliance can lead to legal and financial consequences. 

What Are the Regulations?

In the UK, the maximum height for a fence in the back garden is 2 metres. For a front garden or for a fence adjoining highways, the maximum height without planning permission is 1 metre. 

However, these regulations can vary depending on the local authority you operate within, so it’s always best to check if the rules are different before proceeding!

Barring any specific oddities, you can confidently meet compliance requirements with our range of fencing products, and create a secure and aesthetically pleasing environment for your developments.

Sourcing the Timber Fence Panels You Need

We sell timber fence panels in a range of sizes, all of which are manufactured from pressure-treated wood. This allows them to be used externally by upping their resistance to moisture, rot, and insects. The range of heights allows you to order a compliant option whether you’re looking to install a fence within a front or a back garden.

By choosing our timber fencing, you can create a secure environment for your projects while maintaining the timeless beauty and warmth that natural wood brings.
