What are the requirements for fences?
The City of Sand Springs does not require a permit or inspection for fences. However, the Sand Springs Zoning Code does restrict the maximum height of fencing to 4' in front of a home and 8' behind the front of the home. Subdivision covenants, which are not enforceable by the City, may prohibit fencing in front yards and may also regulate the types of allowable materials. It is recommended that fences be installed with the "smooth" side (the side that does show supporting posts or framing) facing outward,.
