Fencing in Leduc

Fencing Regulations

Fence height and location are regulated under Section 20.14 of the Land Use Bylaw 809-2013. These regulations need to be considered prior to construction. If the height and location regulations are followed, no development permit is required.

Fencing on your property may also have additional fencing restrictions or regulations through a Restrictive Covenant, Agreement, or Caveat, registered on the title of the property. That could include requirements for the construction, replacement or alteration of fencing including material, color, design, height, location, style, dimension or quality. Refer to the land title through Alberta Registries and contact a Development Officer at planning@leduc.ca with further questions.  

The land Developer of your community may also have fence requirements for you to consider for color, style and design. See the City’s Developer Map for contact information in your area.
