Regulations Respecting Zoning at Resolute Bay Airport

Short Title

 These Regulations may be cited as the Resolute Bay Airport Zoning Regulations.

Interpretation

 In these Regulations,

airport

airport means Resolute Bay Airport at Resolute, in the Northwest Territories; (aéroport)

airport reference point

airport reference point means the point determined in the manner set out in Part I of the schedule; (point de repère de l’aéroport)

approach surface

approach surface means an imaginary inclined plane extending upward and outward from each end of a strip along and at right angles to the projected centre line thereof, which approach surface is more particularly described in Part III of the schedule; (surface d’approche)

Minister

Minister means the Minister of Transport; (ministre)

outer surface

outer surface means an imaginary surface located above and in the immediate vicinity of the airport, which outer surface is more particularly described in Part IV of the schedule; (surface extérieure)

strip

strip means the rectangular portion of the landing area of the airport, including the runway prepared for the take-off and landing of aircraft in a particular direction, which strip is more particularly described in Part V of the schedule; (bande)

transitional surface

transitional surface means an imaginary inclined plane extending upward and outward from the lateral limits of a strip and its approach surfaces, which transitional surface is more particularly described in Part VI of the schedule. (surface de transition)

 For the purposes of these Regulations, the airport reference point is deemed to be 200 feet above sea level.

Application

 These Regulations apply to all the lands and lands under water adjacent to or in the vicinity of the airport, the outer limits of which lands are described in Part II of the schedule, other than such lands as from time to time form part of the airport.

General

 No person shall erect or construct, on any land to which these Regulations apply, any building, structure or object or any addition to any existing building, structure or object, the highest point of which will exceed in elevation, at the location of that point, any of the surfaces hereinafter set out that project immediately over and above the surface of the land at that location, namely,

  • (a) the approach surfaces;

  • (b) the outer surface; or

  • (c) the transitional surfaces.

Natural Growth

 Where an object of natural growth on any land to which these Regulations apply exceeds in elevation any of the surfaces referred to in section 5, the Minister may make a direction that the owner or occupier of the land on which that object is growing remove the excessive growth.

SCHEDULE(Sections 2 and 4)

PART IAirport Reference Point

COMMENCING at the intersection of the runways designated 10-28 and 16-34, THENCE northerly along the centre line of runway designated 16-34 for a distance of four thousand (4,000) feet, THENCE westerly and perpendicular to the centre line of runway 16-34 a distance of five hundred (500) feet to the airport reference point.

PART IIDescription of Outer Limits of Lands

A circular area having a radius of thirteen thousand (13,000) feet, the centre of which is the airport reference point.

PART IIIDescription of Each Approach Surface

Being a surface abutting each end of the strips associated with the runways designated 10-28 and 16-34, and more particularly described as follows:

  • (a) a surface abutting the end of the strip associated with runway approach 10 consisting of an inclined plane having a ratio of one (1) foot measured vertically to fifty (50) feet measured horizontally rising to an imaginary horizontal line drawn at right angles to the projected centre line of the strip one thousand (1,000) feet measured vertically above the elevation at the end of the strip and fifty thousand (50,000) feet measured horizontally from the end of the strip, the outer ends of the imaginary horizontal line being eight thousand (8,000) feet from the projected centre line,

  • (b) a surface abutting the end of the strip associated with runway approach 28 consisting of an inclined plane having a ratio of one (1) foot measured vertically to fifty (50) feet measured horizontally rising to an imaginary horizontal line drawn at right angles to the projected centre line of the strip one thousand (1,000) feet measured vertically above the elevation at the end of the strip and fifty thousand (50,000) feet measured horizontally from the end of the strip, the outer ends of the imaginary horizontal line being eight thousand (8,000) feet from the projected centre line,

  • (c) a surface abutting the end of the strip associated with runway approach 16 consisting of an inclined plane having a ratio of one (1) foot measured vertically to fifty (50) feet measured horizontally rising to an imaginary horizontal line drawn at right angles to the projected centre line of the strip one thousand (1,000) feet measured vertically above the elevation at the end of the strip and fifty thousand (50,000) feet measured horizontally from the end of the strip, the outer ends of the imaginary horizontal line being eight thousand (8,000) feet from the projected centre line, and

  • (d) a surface abutting the end of the strip associated with runway approach 34 consisting of an inclined plane having a ratio of one (1) foot measured vertically to fifty (50) feet measured horizontally rising to an imaginary horizontal line drawn at right angles to the projected centre line of the strip one thousand (1,000) feet measured vertically above the elevation at the end of the strip and fifty thousand (50,000) feet measured horizontally from the end of the strip, the outer ends of the imaginary horizontal line being eight thousand (8,000) feet from the projected centre line,

which approach surfaces are shown on Department of Public Works Plan No. E. 1247, dated September 1, 1976.

PART IVDescription of the Outer Surface

Being an imaginary surface consisting of

  • (a) a common plane established at a constant elevation of one hundred and fifty (150) feet above the assigned elevation of the airport reference point, and

  • (b) where the common plane described in paragraph (a) is less than thirty (30) feet above the surface of the ground, an imaginary surface located thirty (30) feet above the surface of the ground,

which outer surface is shown on Department of Public Works Plan No. E. 1247, dated September 1, 1976.

PART VDescription of Each Strip
