fencing FAQ’s

What is closeboard fencing?

Closeboard fencing is a traditional form of wooden fencing also known as featheredge fencing, the featheredge boards are fitted vertically.

what is panel fencing?

Panel fencing is fencing that is erected using panels, ie individual pre made sections of fencing that come in the following standard sizes:-

  • 6’ x 6’ (1.83m x 1.83m)
  • 6’ x 5’ (1.83m x 1.5m)
  • 6’ x 4’ (1.83m x 1.2m)
  • 6’ x 3’ (1.83m x 0.9m)

Styles of panel fencing are Lap Panels, Closeboard or Featheredge Panels, Palisade Panels and Decorative European Panels (high quality decorative styles and most expensive).

Note – When buying these pre made panels double check sizes as some are produced in metric (especially the Decorative panels), ie 1.83m is actually 1.8m.


Apart from the height of your fence, there are other factors that may influence whether planning permission is required. However, the key factor is where the fence lies. If your fence lies inside your property’s boundary you shouldn’t have to seek planning permission.

Also, if you plan on replacing an old fence which is roughly the same height and weight, you shouldn’t have to worry about planning permission.


As above, if the fence to be erected doesn’t exceed the height limit and is built inside your property lines, there isn’t a great deal your neighbour can do. That said, it’s always best to discuss these things with your neighbour beforehand, nipping any neighbourly disputes in the bud.
