  • SOR/93-401, s. 2

 For the purposes of these Regulations, the airport reference point is deemed to be 2,276 feet above sea level.

Application

 These Regulations apply to all the lands and lands under water, including public road allowances, 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 or any land under water 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 outer surfaces; or

  • (c) the transitional surfaces.
