I am about to buy a house with a field that runs along side the road. The front of the house faces the road and has a low hedge. The field has trees and bushes running along it with a 3 bar traditional fence on our boundry. Can i put fence panels on the back of the fence my side to give additional privacy and some sound protection.? also at the front of the house I understand the 2M rule adjacent to a highway, but is the hedge the bit adjacent to the highway and if I put the fence behind the hedge does that mean I dont need PP.?

The hedge could be removed at anytime, which would therefore expose the fence and which is why you’d require PP.

Hello Damian, so behind the hedge is the existing fence, 3 bar . I was wondering if thats the the bit that would then be adjacent to the highway....grasping at straws really ...need to soeak to Planning

The hedge and existing fence are adjacent the highway. As you don’t need Planning for a hedge, you will for a fence.
