Fence Permits

When building a fence around your property, you are required to be in compliance with By-law 2017-40.

Should you be located in a subdivision built within the last 5 years, you must confirm your property has "Final Lot Grading" prior to construction of the fence. 

You are not required to apply for a fence permit. (Installing a pool fence still requires a permit, we refer to this permit as a pool permit). 

Please email building@essatownship.on.ca to inquire if your property has final lot grading. 

Please note that the Township does not become involved in disputes between neighbours regarding fences on private property and/or property lines. This is a civil matter and is not governed by the municipality.
