City of Winchester Urges Residents to Check Fence Regulations
18 August 2017 News
If you are thinking of adding or replacing a fence on your property in the city of Winchester, use caution. Before hiring a vendor or installing a fence, please check the city’s fence regulations to make sure your fence will be compliant based on your specific yard configuration and zoning district.
At the Planning Commission’s August 15, 2017 meeting, they had to facilitate a hearing about fences being too high on South Street. The planning commission says that safety is the main concern on the issue. The fences were built too high and could potentially be a hazard.
A full list of regulations can be found on the Winchester City government website. Additionally, you can contact the city’s Zoning and Inspections Department at (540) 667-1815.
