Does my fence project require Planning review and approval?

The planning review and approval process is referred to as Design Review. Most all exterior changes, including fences, require Design Review. This is true even if a building permit is not required for the same project.

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 Design Review is required for your fence project, contact the Planning & Building Department by email or call (415) 435-3838.
