Picture of a fence erected by Wolverhampton homes

We are working to improve the fencing to over 13,000 homes. To do this we need to have a fencing programme to schedule new fencing for houses and flats with individual gardens.

We have listed all the houses which are due to have fencing replaced in the current programme on this page.

Fencing Programme+

If your home is not listed in this programme, it may be in a later phase. There are many properties which need fencing improvements, so we will regularly review the programme and post the updates here as soon as they are available.

If your home is listed in the programme, you will be contacted by our contractors before the work is due to take place so that they can agree a start date with you. You will be able to ask questions and find out the details of the work which will be carried out.

All of our contractors carry ID cards, so please ask to see their ID before you allow anyone into your home. Keep bogus callers out!

If you have any queries, please read our fencing FAQs on this page.

Fencing FAQs+

When will my fencing be improved?
This will depend on where your house is in the programme. All the houses which are due to have the fencing replaced in the current programme are listed.

How has the programme been decided?
We have planned the programme so that fencing is replaced according to priority. The fencing that is in the worst condition or that causes any safety issues will be replaced first.

What does the fencing look like?
It is high quality, normally 2 metres high, close board panels with concrete posts and gravel boards. This type of fencing was agreed with tenants and is designed to last between 15 and 20 years.

Will I have to pay for fencing?
Yes. Tenants have told us that a fencing improvement programme is very important and provides a greater sense of security and will reduce nuisance. Therefore anyone living in a house or flat with its own garden, who receives improved fencing will have a weekly service charge levied (currently £2 per week).

Why do you have to charge for fencing?
Simply because there isn’t enough money available. The average cost of the preparation, reclaiming any land and then putting up the fencing is £1,700 per property which means that, if you didn’t make a contribution, it would take almost 50 years to replace all the fencing.

Will I have to pay the charge immediately?
No. You will only have to pay when the fencing has been improved at your home.

What if I have paid for my own fencing, will I still have to pay the charge?
No. You will only pay the charge where we provide new fencing.

What if I receive Housing Benefit or Universal Credit?
The fencing charge is a condition of your tenancy agreement so it will be covered by Housing Benefit/Universal Credit.

What if I live in a flat or maisonette where there is communal fencing, will all the tenants pay the charge?
Communal fencing is not part of this programme.

Will I have a choice and be able to opt out?
Only in exceptional circumstances. The fencing will be improved unless it has already been replaced or is in a good condition and likely to last a further 5 years. (The provision for a fencing service charge is included within the tenancy agreement.)

What happens if my fencing needs repair?
We will carry out repairs if there is a safety risk and the repair isn’t needed because of damage or neglect.

What if my home is not listed in the current programme?
Your house will be in a later phase. There are many properties that need fencing improvements and the programme will be regularly reviewed.

If my fencing is in the next phase, can you tell me which year it will be improved?
Not yet. We can only tell you the year if your home is in the current programme.

My home is included in the programme what happens now?
You will be contacted by our contractors before the works take place to agree a preferable start date. You will be able to ask questions and find out the details of the work that will be carried out.

Do I have to do anything in the meantime?
When we are due to start the work, you will need to make sure your garden is accessible and that the boundary is clear to allow the fence to be erected. If not you may be charged.

What happens, if over the years, my garden has been reduced in size and a waste land has been created?
The fencing will be erected along the boundary line shown on the deeds to your property. You will then be responsible for looking after the reclaimed garden.
 

Looking after your fence+

Once your fence has been fitted, it is important to look after it carefully so that it lasts as long as possible.

  • Regularly stain your fence using Tudor Oak colour-stain.
  • Keep vines and bushes away the fence and trim them regularly. Plants will damage the fence as they grow.
  • Make sure sprinklers don't constantly spray your fence. 
  • Clean your fence. Use a broom to brush off cobwebs and loose dirt.
  • Do not have bonfires or barbecues near your fence and do not use your fence to launch fireworks from. Your fence is made of timber and will burn.
  • Do not kick a ball against your fence and make sure younger children know not to lean on or climb the fence
