Stage 3 lockdown: guidance and support.

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?
