In general, if your property is not located within a Scenic Corridor Overlay District (See Below), you can install a privacy fence without any permits. That’s right! You can just build it without any type of Planning or Building review or permit. Section 5.01.09 of the Walton County Land Development Code provides the requirements for Fences not located within a Scenic Corridor Overlay District. There are some requirement for lots less than one half acre in size that are different than larger lots.
