Residential Fences

A building permit is not required to construct a new fence.  However, the City does have a by-law in place to regulate the height, material and location of the fence.

Although a permit is not required, the construction of a fence must meet the provisions of the City of Sarnia Fence By-law. 

For further information, please view the Fence brochure or consult with Planning and Building Department staff
