Do I need a Permit to build a fence in Atlanta?
Depends on where you live. As of this writing there are 5 cities in the Metro Atlanta area that require fence permits. The City of Atlanta, City of Sandy Springs, City of Milton, City of Johns Creek and the City of Brookhaven. Each of these areas has their own process and rules but all are relatively simple and easy to navigate.
When you decide a new fence is in your future click on the link provided for your city, download, print and fill out the provided paperwork. When you submit your paperwork include your Apex fence quote with its diagram to show the location of your fence. Your city permitting representative will most likely approve your application and you are free to have your new fence installed upon receiving approval.
For City of Atlanta residents, Apex Fence has a permit expediter for your fence permit if you choose to not drive down to Trinity Ave and apply yourself. Call and we will provide you with her name and number and for a fee plus permit fee she will procure your fence permit for you. This is between you (applicant) and our expediter exclusively. Apex Fence is not a participant in this process nor does it profit in any way. This is purely a convenience we can provide for you.
