Do I need a building permit to construct a fence?

Generally fences are exempt from zoning regulations and, therefore, do not require a permit for construction. The only possible exception to this rule would be if the fence is in a subdivision. Please check with your subdivision for rules. In addition, to ensure the fence is not in the road right of way, check with the Road Department at (785) 403-0279 or the Kansas Department of Transportation.
