    Hi All,

    The recent wind has damaged my fence at the front of the house. The fence was 6ft tall and I am now left to consider my options for replacement. I am wondering if I can replace the fence with a 6ft brick wall and whether this would require planning permission.

    We have a main road at the front of our property.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think 1 mtr is the max at the front.

    my neighbor has 6ft brick pillars with wood infills sitting on a wall. Does this set a precedence?

    No precedent, you can't use that argument.

    1m max next to a highway ("next to" could be up to 2m away IIRC), otherwise 2m. Above that you need planning permission.

    Covenents on house deeds may also say something about it.
