How Close Can I put Fence to Utility Pole?


Hello,

I have a Utility/Telephone pole in my back yard about 2-3 feet from the back edge of my property. Right now I just have chick wire as fencing to keep my dogs in but I want to put up a better fence/ Privacy fence to block the neighbors shrubs from growing into our lawn.

How close can I put a wooden privacy fence to this pole? Do I have to call the city to get a surveyor?

Most cities (at least here in Canada) have a hotline to call for Dial Before You Dig services which will come out and mark and locate all of the services on the property before you proceed with ground disturbances. There are penalties if you hit a line and have not called for the locating service in advance.

That is usually found at your utility company information help line.

Here I see them 6 inches away all over the place, Mine (wire) is less than that, just a couple of inches.

Thanks for your help everyone. I called miss dig and there are no marks where I want to put the fence so it looks like I'm good to go.
