Permits are required for new fence construction, replacement of an existing fence and repair of an existing fence involving 20 feet (20') or more of fence. The permit fee for a fence is $42.00. In order to obtain a permit you must submit a permit application and a site plan indicating the location of the fence with dimensions from property lines and other structures. (see handout for site plans)
A fence permit can be issued to a homeowner who is homesteading residential property. We will confirm the homestead exemption via the Grayson County Appraisal District website. All other fence permits can only be issued to registered general contractors. A contractor registration form can be found here.
