Decks, Patios, & Patio walls

The Village of Burr Ridge Zoning Ordinance regulates the construction of all accessory structures on residential properties in the Village.  Accessory structures include decks, patios, patio walls, sidewalks, and similar structures.  A permit is required to construct most accessory structures including decks, patios, and patio walls.  If you are not sure if you need a permit for your project please contact Village staff (see contact information below). For decks, patios, and patio walls, the permit packet links will provide you with information about the regulations and the permit process and include permit applications for decks, patios, and patio walls.

Residential decks, patios, and patio walls must be located in the side or rear yard of a property and the combined area of all accessory structures and buildings in a rear yard cannot exceed 30% of the rear yard. If you have further questions about decks and deck permits, please contact one of the following staff members:
