Fence Permits

Effective immediately, the Town will no longer require permits for fences. Town management has, by policy, called for the halting of permitting, fee collection, and inspections for fences. Any fence that you may wish to install will not have to go through the Planning Department for approval. Please note, while the permitting is being eliminated, the Town’s fence standards still apply. Additionally, this policy decision has no effect on fencing for pools, as required by the NC State Building Code. This policy decision is the result of input received from the public and development community related to the permitting process.

The Planning Department administers all zoning and subdivision regulations for all property within the Town's planning jurisdiction, which includes the corporate (town) limits as well as the extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ). For the past few years, the Planning Department has been hard at work developing plans, which are designed to work together, to help move one of the fast-growing towns in North Carolina forward. Growth is inevitable but planning for it will ensure that Fuquay-Varina maintains the quality-of-life attributes that make it such a desirable place to call “home.”
