Yes, all accessory structures require a Building Permit prior to placement or construction. Accessory structures, such as patio covers, storage buildings, gazebos, arbors, or detached garages, may be built as long as they meet all setback criteria for that lot and zoning requirements. Building materials depend on the size of the accessory building. Please contact Building Inspections at (972) 292-5398 or 972-292-5392 to determine setbacks and building materials specific to your situation.
Fence Permits are required for all fences built, except when repairing or replacing a portion of the fence -- limited to two (2) sections or sixteen (16) feet. Fences may be built up to eight (8) feet in height from the grade on the rear and side yards of the main structure. Fences built in front of the main structure may be built four (4') feet in height. All vision clips, access and maintenance (VAM) requirements must be observed. In no case can a fence or portion of any fence extend past any property line.
