Do I need a building permit for my fence project?

Building permits are required in Belvedere for all additions, alterations, repairs, and for all maintenance that is done to electrical, plumbing and mechanical systems. Fences and gates not higher than 6 feet are subject to building permit exemption. However, most all exterior changes, including fences, require Planning Design Review, even if a building permit is not be required.

The following Municipal Code and Policies govern new and existing fences including repair and replacement. Please review before starting any fence project.

To confirm whether a building permit and/or Design Review is required for your fence project, contact the Planning & Building Department by email or call (415) 435-3838.
