Fence Ordinances in Northville Michigan
Below is a brief overview of the fence ordinances for Northville 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 Northville.
Design & Height Requirements
You can install just about any common type of fence in Northville MI that is available to-date (unless you are in the historic district). These common types of fences include vinyl fencing, wood fencing, chain link fence, aluminum fence, and composite fences.
The maximum height for fences being installed in Northville is 6-1/2 feet tall. This is typically created by installing a 6-ft tall fence with up to 6 inches of ground gap clearance for maintaining grass/weeds under the fence.
When installing a fence in Northville, the finished/good side of all fences must face your adjacent neighbor and cannot face your property. This means that all posts and other support components must be installed on your side of the fence while the finished side of the fence must be on your neighbor’s side of the fence)
Fences installed in Northville may not include barbed wire, razor ribbon, or electrical charges with the exception of underground invisible dog fences.
Residential fences installed in Northville can be installed around your entire back yard and along the sides of your house. They cannot, however, be extended beyond the front corners of your home. The only exception to this is if your property is larger than 3 acres OR has a frontage of at least 200 linear feet AND the fence is no taller than 4-ft tall.
If you live on a corner lot and want to have a fence installed, you must follow all location ordinances for interior lots and also cannot extend a fence beyond the side/front corners of your home (towards the side yard/sidewalk).
It is possible that you could be granted zoning board approval to have your fence extend beyond the corners of your home and towards the sidewalk but this is on a specific case basis and there is no rule-of-thumb to determine the possibility.
Fence Repairs in Northville MI
Fence repairs in Northville Michigan are pretty easy going. As long as you are not changing anything about your current fence (ie: location, type, style, height, etc.) you will not be required to obtain a fence permit. It is also important to note that you cannot “repair” the large majority of your total fence. Doing so would be considered a fence replacement and would require permit approval prior to the fence installation.
