Zoning Permits - Fences, Walls, and Hedges

While zoning permits are not required for fences, walls or hedges in Plain Township, they must meet zoning regulations with regards to height, and location along roadways.

In all Residential Districts, they may not exceed 3 feet in height in or along the sides or front edge of a front yard of a property and may not exceed 8 feet in height in or along the edge of a rear or side yard.   They may be placed up to the property line.

In Business or Industrial Districts, they are permitted with a maximum height of 8 feet, with an additional 2 feet of barb wire permitted if applicable.

Any fence, wall, or hedge located in or along the edge of any yard abutting public or private dedicated thoroughfare in any Zoning District shall be located a minimum of 5 feet from any street right-of-way line.   Fences, walls and hedges shall not impair vision of traffic in any way.

Fences, walls or hedges on any lot shall be located so they do not impair vision of traffic in any way. See Section 603.4 regarding visibility at corner lots.
