Matters relating to dividing fences are governed by the Dividing Fences Act 1961.
Generally the Town has no involvement in dividing fences issues as they are civil matters between individual property owners.
In some circumstances a building licence may be required, such as when the dividing fence is of brick construction.
Contact us for information on whether a building licence is required for your dividing fence.
The Department of Commerce (Building Commission) provide a guide to Dividing Fences and can also be contacted for advice.
