Do I Need Building Regulations?
Fences, walls and gates do not require building regulation approval. Whilst building regulation approval may not be required, the structures must be maintained and structurally sound.
In certain circumstances, if the garden wall is classed as a party fence wall and subject to the work you intend to carry out, you will be required to notify the adjoining owner of the work in accordance with the Party Walls Act. This does not apply to wooden fences however.
