Fence Ordinances in Canton Michigan

Below is a brief overview of the fence ordinances for Canton Michigan. This is not a complete or definite list and should never be used in support of a dispute. Click here to review the complete document of codes and ordinances regarding fences in Canton.

Design & Height Requirements

The maximum fence height allowed in Canton is 6 feet tall. Note that some restrictions may apply for products like chain link fencing which may only be allowed at a max height of 4 feet tall. Canton also requires that fence posts be installed at a depth equal to at least half of the height of the fence (regardless of fence height, we recommend around 38-42 inches deep).

Just about all common fence types and styles are allowed with the exception of barbed wire or any other fence with sharp objects. It is also important that you check with any homeowners association that you may belong to regarding the approval of your fence as some associations have their own fence requirements that are separate from the city ordinances.

Location Requirements

All fences installed in Canton Michigan must be installed on the inside of your shared property line unless you and your neighbor apply for a joint permit (you both apply for the fence together). You are also required to build all fences so that the finished/good side of the fence is facing your adjacent neighbor(s) rather than your property. This is what we call “good side out“.

No fence may extend forward beyond the front face of your house. If you are a corner lot, in most cases, you may extend beyond the side of the house (towards the side street) as long as your fence is installed at least 1-ft away from the public sidewalk.

Fence repairs in Canton Michigan

All fences in Canton must remain in good shape and properly repaired at all times. If your fence becomes damaged and requires a minor repair, there is no permit needed. If you are doing a major repair or replacement that will be changing the type, style, height, color or design of your fence, you will need to first obtain a permit.

Fence Permit Requirements in Canton MI.

The building department at Canton Township can be tough to deal with, and take a long time to approve your permit if you do not have the proper paperwork in order. You will also need to submit a copy of the fence approval from your homeowners association, if applicable.

The cost of a fence permit is $58. This consists of a permit fee and plan review fee.

Proposed Layout

A detailed drawing/layout of the proposed fence must accompany your fence permit application. This proposed layout/drawing will need to include any buildings/structures on the property, any existing fences, walls, etc., and measurements of the proposed fence.

Neighbor Approvals

If you will be removing a shared fence and replacing it with a new fence OR installing a new fence on a shared property line, you are required to have your neighbor(s) sign a neighbor approval form and submit it with your permit application. Each adjacent neighbor that will be sharing the fence must fill out a form.
