Dividing fences

Dividing Fences

Dividing fences of individual allotments are controlled by the Queensland Neighbourhood Disputes (Dividing Fences and Trees) Act 2011.

Fences of less than two metres in height (above the level of ‘natural ground’) do not require council approval in most cases.

The Queensland Government website has information about avoiding fence, tree and building disputes.
