Shed setback from prop lines?


Hi All,

Is there a rule about how far from your property line you can have a shed? I know it depends on the city or town but I just thought that there may be an average.

in my neighborhood its 4' from back and 2' from side, and there are height restrictions too, but it varies dramatically. you usually need to contact the zoning section of your building code dept. to find the answer to your setback requirements (if you're lucky you can find it on line if your jurisdiction is up on the web)

Even if there is an "average" how would that help you?

Here it's 10' from any property line, no permit required if 100 sq. ft. or less. No taller than 10' . But a detached 1 or 2 garage can be built 12" from a side or rear yard PROPERTY LINE, GO FIGURE.

Check with your local Building Inspection Department for code, permit and inspection requirements, if any.

As Mike stated, check in town.
This most definitely is not something that anyone here can answer for you, even if we were your next door neighbor.
Each area/town/city has it's own setback requirements. There are also "grandfathered" clauses that can allow you to install a shed closer than other properties, etc...Check your local city department...

Here is is 64 square feet and less than 8 feet tall or all standard set backs apply, so you definitely need to check local codes.

Re: Shed setback from prop lines?


Need to be contacting the number right on the notice and asking this question.
Should have found this out before building anything.

Re: Shed setback from prop lines?


I'm going to make a guess that Vegas has an ordinance for sheds in the front yard.

Call the # on the notice for an explanation.

It doesn't even have to be a shed ordinance.

Depending on how a frontal setback regulation is written, any accessory structure in front of the primary structure setback line, can be a zoning violation.

Ayuh,.... In my village, it's 5' from the sides or back, 15' from the front,...
A shed under 144sq.ft.(12'x12') is portable, 'n can be on the line, no permit required,....

It didn't take long to find it.
For residential zones in Las Vegas
UDC 19.06.040 C 2

"No accessory structure is permitted in front of the primary structure unless the structure is a side- loaded garage that is used strictly as an ancillary use and does not encroach into the front setback area."

AND, just to complicate things, if on a pad, my area needs an entire property assessment of impervious ground coverage (can't be more than X% of property).
