Corner lots fall under different guidelines for front and side property lines. For more information, refer to the
Fencing cannot exceed 4 feet in height in the front yard(s) and cannot obstruct any vehicular vision. Fencing cannot exceed 6 feet 6 inches in height in the side and rear yard. Decorative fencing can face either side; property owner’s preference. While fencing can be located directly on the property line, the Township strongly recommends the fence be placed inside the property line to allow enough room for maintenance on both sides without infringing on the neighboring property. Corner lots are considered to have 2 front yards. For more information on corner lots, please refer to the Corner Lot Diagram (PDF). Any fence installed within the right-of-way or over an easement is at your own risk.
