Some of our services have different times over the holidays, including waste collections previously scheduled for Christmas and New Year's Day. Read about the changes.

Check whether the fence could obstruct the view of traffic

Refer to your plans to determine the height and location of the front fence.

A front fence obstructs the view of traffic if it is

  • on a street corner (including where a lane and a street intersect)
  • higher than 1m from the footpath level, and
  • within 9m of the intersection of front and side title boundaries.
Front Fence on a Corner

In this diagram, Section 1 indicates the parts of the fence that could obstruct views of traffic when fencing is higher than 1m from the footpath level. Section 2 indicates the parts of the fence unaffected by this height restriction

    Could the height and location of the front fence make it a possible obstruction to views of traffic?
