Airport height restriction breach: Canadian turbines to be removed

Airport height restriction breach: Canadian turbines to be removed
June 19, 2013 Admin

An order has been issued for the removal of eight turbines surrounding a Canadian airport because they do not comply with Federal Airport Zoning Regulations (FAZRs).

The developers received the order from Transport Canada on the morning of Friday 14th June 2013, instructing them to remove eight turbines that violated the height restrictions surrounding the Chatham-Kent Muncipal Airport. 

This is the latest example of why it is so important for you to check that your development does not breach these height restrictions in the planning process. You can do this quickly using our Obstruction Assessment.

What are FAZRs?

In Canada, FAZRs are rules put in place to protect the airspace surrounding an airport. They ensure that the airport, and aircraft, continue to operate safely. In the UK we have similar procedures, often referred to as Physical Safeguarding.

As part of these regulations, height restrictions can be enforced around the airport. These can apply to structures such wind turbines, radio masts, buildings, trees… etc.
