Solid Privacy Fence OK With Hanover's ZHB
Though the zoning ordinance permits only see-through fences, Solicitor Ted Lewis noted that it permits residents to build walls, really big ones (six feet high). He questioned why a wall is permitted, but a solid fence is banned.
The Kutz' fence, which will be 208' long and six feet high, will connect to a neighbor next door who had a fence before the Zoning ordinance took effect.
Kutz explained that, in addition to privacy, the fence will buffer some of the noise from traffic. The fence is inside of landscaping he already has planted.
No one opposed this request.
