When fences are installed, they are put in place to deter crime.
But in some areas, people are taking advantage of the fencing system.
In many cases, it is the fences that are causing antisocial activity.
BBC Sport has spoken to experts who are worried about the fences stardocks process.
How is fencing different to the old fences?
A new fence isn’t put in.
Instead, fences are raised to protect the land from erosion and natural disasters.
But there are risks involved.
For example, fencing can’t go into a forested area, and can’t move in the wind, which could mean the fence won’t stay in place for long.
What is a fence?
Fencing is a type of building where there are two walls.
It can be built to protect against a specific threat, or to protect a wider area.
In this case, it’s to protect farmland.
What are the different types of fences?
There are three main types of fencing, but each has its own pros and cons.
There are traditional fences that sit at the edge of the land, like those used for traditional farming, but can also be used for urban areas.
There’s also new fences that go up in an enclosed space, like in the example above.
The fence that surrounds the St Andrews Golf Course, on the west coast of Scotland, is one of the new fences.
The Scottish Government says the fence is effective and it has helped protect the golf course from the elements.
How much fencing do we need?
Fences are generally placed in residential areas where they’re easy to walk past.
But they can also cover wider areas such as golf courses, shopping centres and residential estates.
In some areas like Glasgow, fencing is installed for agricultural purposes.
Fencing can also help keep weeds out of the countryside.
What happens when a fence is put in?
If a fence hasn’t been put in for a while, then it’s usually removed.
That can take several days, so there’s usually a bit of time for the fence to dry before it can be removed.
Once it is removed, the area is usually cleared.
The area that’s cleared usually includes areas like a garden, or a car park, or any other area where fences might have been built.
What will happen if a fence isn�t put in in a certain time frame?
If the fence hasn�t been put up for a few weeks or months, then the area can be cleared and new fencing erected.
That usually takes several days.
Then, the new fencing can be put up again.
What does it cost to install a fence in Scotland?
Installation is usually covered by a range of government grants.
If the fencing is new, it may cost around £10,000.
If it’s older, the average cost is around £2,000 to £2.5, depending on the size of the area.
You’ll need to work out the cost for each piece of fencing.
How do fences affect antisocial activities?
If fencing isn�s not up to scratch, then antisocial people will often be seen trespassing, or harassing, people who have the fencing.
This can be done to gain access to property or to steal items, or even to commit a crime.
Some fencing is also built around areas with high levels of antisocial behavior.
For instance, in the Stirling area, the fence surrounding the St James�s Park is an example of this.
It’s often used for hunting and fishing, and people have built it to attract birds.
How are fences maintained?
The Scottish government says that fencing can take up to a year to be fully maintained, which can be up to 12 months for new fences and a further three months for older fences.
If fencing is a problem, it can require fencing to be removed and replaced.
This takes time.
Is fencing a good idea for everyone?
Fence installation is good for the environment, and it’s good for our wellbeing.
But fencing is expensive.
So if you can’t afford to put in a fence, then you can use other methods of deterring crime, like making your own fencing, or fencing strips.
How many fences are there in Scotland, and how many are there around Scotland?
Scotland has about 13,500 kilometres of fencing and about 3,000km of other barriers.
The number of fences varies from one area to another, but Scotland has more than 8,000 fences around the country.
Why does Scotland need so many fences?
Scotland was established in the 19th century, and was part of a major migration of people from Europe to the North Sea.
The Scots came with a great deal of wealth and a culture which has shaped their identity, and they’re still doing that today.
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Scotland had about 2,000 indigenous peoples.
That number has now grown to about 20,
