In Montclair, a Zoning Permit is required for installation of a fence up to six feet in height on one and two family residential properties only. In this case bring in your property survey into the zoning office with the fence lines marked in red. For fences over six feet in height, a building permit is a requirement; get in touch with the building department. For multi-family structures with 3 or more units, a site plan review by the zoning board is required. In this case, contact the building/zoning office for any fence work.

Residents planning to install fencing on their property, up to a maximum of 6 feet in height, should contact the Department of Planning & Community Development to discuss permitted fence heights on their property. A Zoning Permit is required for the installation of fencing. A copy of the resident’s property survey must accompany the Zoning Permit, so the location of the proposed fence can be noted with the Permit.
Residents planning to install fencing over 6 feet in height must obtain a Building Permit from the Building Office. A zoning review of the proposed fence will be conducted as part of the Building Permit review.
NOTE: Fencing to enclose any swimming pool requires obtaining a Building Permit for installation. Please contact the Building Department regarding installation of swimming pool enclosure fencing.
