The Town of North Castle in Westchester County, New York has amended its zoning code to add a new definition of “fence.” See Local Law 6-2014.
The new definition is very broad, including a “visible or tangible barrier enclosing, bordering or delineating a yard.” However, the definition expressly excludes hedges, shrubs, trees or natural growth. The law also states that a fence shall not be constructed of “tarpaulins or sheets.” A copy of the new law can be found online at the following address:
