No Building or Development Permits are required to build a fence in North Battleford. However, some restrictions apply.
Section 4.7 of the City of North Battleford Zoning Bylaw No. 1971 regulates the construction of a fence.
The height of fence is measured from the ground level immediately next to the fence to the highest point of the fence.
The front yard is limited to 1.0 m in height.
The side and rear yards are limited to 2.0 m in height. The side yard begins at the front corner of the principal building.
No fence construction is allowed on that area next to the property between the property and the Right–of-Way, known as the Sight Triangle.

Determining the property line
When building a fence or planting a hedge, it is advised that you measure carefully to determine the exact location of the property lines. In most cases, the front property line is not located next to the sidewalk.
The location of property lines in relation to the house located on the lot are recorded on the Real Property Report (Survey Certificate) or may be determined by hiring a Saskatchewan Land Surveyor. It is the responsibility of the property owner to ensure the accurate location of fencing relative to their property site lines.
Sharing a fence
The City of North Battleford has no jurisdiction in disputes arising over fence construction, cost or maintenance as these matters fall within provincial jurisdiction and can be resolved through civil litigation.
