P.C. 2004-1093 2004-09-30

Whereas, pursuant to subsection 5.5(1)Footnote a of the Aeronautics Act, a copy of the proposed Pickering Airport Site Zoning Regulations, substantially in the annexed form, was published in two successive issues of the Canada Gazette, Part I, on April 12 and April 19, 2003, and in two successive issues of the Toronto Star, on April 14 and April 15, 2003, and L’Express, on April 15 and April 22, 2003, and a reasonable opportunity was thereby afforded to interested persons to make representations to the Minister of Transport with respect to the proposed Regulations;

And whereas a purpose of the proposed Regulations is to prevent lands adjacent to or in the vicinity of the Pickering airport site from being used or developed in a manner that is, in the opinion of the Minister of Transport, incompatible with the safe operation of an airport or aircraft;

And whereas a purpose of the proposed Regulations is to prevent lands adjacent to or in the vicinity of facilities used to provide services relating to aeronautics from being used or developed in a manner that would, in the opinion of the Minister of Transport, cause interference with signals or communications to and from aircraft or to and from those facilities;

Therefore, Her Excellency the Governor General in Council, on the recommendation of the Minister of Transport, pursuant to paragraphs 5.4(2)(b)Footnote a and (c)Footnote a of the Aeronautics Act, hereby makes the annexed Pickering Airport Site Zoning Regulations.

    outer surface

    outer surface means the imaginary surface located above and in the immediate vicinity of the airport, which surface is described in Part 3 of the schedule. (surface extérieure)

    strip surface

    strip surface means the portion of a landing area of the airport, including a proposed runway, prepared for the take-off and landing of aircraft in a particular direction, which portion is described in Part 4 of the schedule. (surface de bande)

 No person shall erect or construct, on land in respect of which these Regulations apply, a building, structure or object, or an addition to an existing building, structure or object, the highest point of which would exceed in elevation at the location of that point

  • (a) the approach surfaces;

  • (b) the outer surface;

  • (c) the transitional surfaces; or

  • (d) the strip surface.

Aeronautical Facilities

 No owner or lessee of land within the outer surface shall permit any part of that land to be used or developed in a manner that causes interference with any signal or communication to and from an aircraft or any facility used to provide services relating to aeronautics.

Natural Growth

 No owner or lessee of land in respect of which these Regulations apply shall permit an object of natural growth that is on the land to grow to a height that exceeds in elevation at the location of the object any surface referred to in section 3.

Bird Hazard

 No owner or lessee of land within the limits of the bird hazard zone shall permit any part of that land to be used for activities or uses attracting birds that create a hazard to aviation safety and are therefore incompatible with the safe operation of the airport or aircraft.
