Where can I build a deck?

[Click here](https://durham.municipal.codes/UDO/6.12.3B.7) to see the UDO rules for deck locations. Decks can encroach up to four feet into a [side yard](https://durhamdevelopmentservicescenter.mojohelpdesk.com/ma/#/kb/articles/185903/detail), or up to eight feet into any required [rear yard](https://durhamdevelopmentservicescenter.mojohelpdesk.com/ma/#/kb/articles/185903/detail), or within four feet of a rear property line. Decks do not count toward your impervious surface limit unless they have a roof or otherwise do not let water through. A deck will require a building permit.
