The City of Brentwood enforces certain standards for the construction and maintenance of fences and screening walls. The standards address the materials and types of installations permitted, height/design limitations, and prohibited areas such as public utility and drainage easements, etc. Fences installed in the flood plain must be approved by the Planning Commission. While no permits are required for installation of standard type fences in residential districts, residents are strongly encouraged to review the requirements established in Section 78-10 of the Municipal Code. The code is available for your review on the city’s web page, www.brentwood-tn.org, under the Legal Department or City Recorder's pages. In addition, residents should confirm that the type and placement of the proposed fence will comply with the restrictive covenants and other regulations in force for the subdivision or development. Call the Planning & Codes at 615-371-2204 or www.brentwood-tn.org/planning for more information.
