Fencing

For licensing purposes, the term fencing means the erection of fences and gates, irrespective of the construction materials used, within or on residential property boundary lines.

Should a licence/certificate holder be limited in the type of fencing work that may be undertaken, a condition attached to the work category will indicate those limits.

Note: the following classes of work also permit the carrying out of certain types of fencing work:

  • The class of carpentry includes timber (including brushwood and the like), metal and prefabricated glass fencing.
  • The class of glazing includes glass and other acrylic fencing.
  • The class of metal fabrication includes metal fencing.
  • The class of bricklaying includes brick fencing and associated footings for freestanding brick fences where the footings will not be subject to loads other than the completed brickwork, gates or decorative adornments.
  • The class of stonemasonry includes masonry fencing and associated footings for freestanding masonry fences where the footings will not be subject to loads other than the completed masonry work, gates or decorative adornments.
