No. There is no Town law or ordinance regulating fences. However, fences in excess of 8 feet in height or higher will need to comply with NYS Building Code or HOA guidelines if applicable. The Town of Malta does recommend that you place any fencing at least 1 foot inside of your property line to allow room for maintenance. We also recommend you communicate with your neighbor to let them know you are constructing a fence.
