 For the purposes of these Regulations, the airport reference point is deemed to be 171 feet above sea level.

Application

 These Regulations apply to all the lands, lands under water and waters, including public road allowances, adjacent to or in the vicinity of the airport, the outer limits of which lands and waters 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, land under water or waters 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 the highest 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 horizontal surface; or

  • (c) the transitional surface.

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 paragraphs 5(a) to (c), the Minister may make a direction that the owner or occupier of the land on which the object is growing remove the excessive growth.
