Completion of fencing is not a requisite to the final inspection, however if fencing is in place at time of final inspection it will be assessed for compliance with the guideline standard for the neighbourhood. Non-compliance will be treated as a deficiency, affecting the refund of landscaping deposit.

All wood screen fencing must be consistent in design and colour with the fencing style established for the subdivision.
Lots backing onto the pond may utilize wood screen fence at the side property lines: The fence may be full height to a point 10’ forward of the rear property line, where the fence must be ANGLED down to match the height of the developer installed chain link fence at the rear.
