ATTN: Residents, property owners, roofing contractors and fence contractors in the City of Tupelo:
With the current high level of rebuilding work going on in Tupelo, the Development Services department has received a high volume of questions regarding the requirements on roofs and fences.
Do I have to get a permit for replacing or repairing a roof?
If you are simply replacing shingles, a permit is not required. However, if roof decking or structural repairs are involved, or if placing a metal roof on a structure that did not already have a metal roof, a permit is required.
Do I have to get a permit to build or repair a fence?
No permit is required for fence construction. However, you are responsible for making sure that the fence meets location, height, and appearance standards as follows:
- In residential areas, a fence between the wall line of the house and a street may not be more than four feet in height.
- Between the house and the side or rear lot lines, a fence may be eight feet in height.
- If a house on an adjoining property is further from the street, fence height over four feet may not be closer than the closest point of the adjoining house.
- On double frontage lots, fences between the rear of houses and major collector or arterial streets may be eight feet.
- The finished side of all fences shall face off site.
- On corner lots and other situations, higher fences may be approved through the compatible use review process.
Who should I contact if I have questions about these requirements or permitting procedures?
