Edmonton Garrison Heliport Zoning Regulations
P.C. 2004-431 2004-04-22Whereas, pursuant to subsection 5.5(1)Footnote a of the Aeronautics Act, a copy of the proposed Edmonton Garrison Heliport Zoning Regulations, substantially in the annexed form, was published in two successive issues of a newspaper serving the area to which the proposed Regulations relate, namely on March 28 and 29, 2002, and in two successive issues of the Canada Gazette, Part I, on March 30 and April 6, 2002, and a reasonable opportunity was afforded to interested persons to make representations to the Minister of National Defence with respect to the proposed Regulations;
Return to footnote aR.S., c. 33 (1st Supp.), s. 1
And whereas the proposed Regulations would prevent lands adjacent to or in the vicinity of the Edmonton Garrison Heliport from being used or developed in a manner that is, in the opinion of the Minister of National Defence, incompatible with the safe operation of an airport or aircraft;
Therefore, Her Excellency the Governor General in Council, on the recommendation of the Minister of National Defence, pursuant to paragraph 5.4(2)(b)Footnote a of the Aeronautics Act, hereby makes the annexed Edmonton Garrison Heliport Zoning Regulations.Interpretation

(i) the National Defence Airport and Heliport Zoning Manager, where the total surface area of the reservoir is greater than 2.5 ha but less than or equal to 6 ha, and
(ii) the Minister, where the total surface area of the reservoir is greater than 6 ha; or

(c) the open water reservoir consists of dry ponds, the owner or lessee ensures that all reasonable measures are taken to minimize bird hazards to aviation and, where the lands are used as an open water reservoir for a period of more than 48 hours more than once per calendar year, the measures have been approved by the Minister as minimizing bird hazards to aviation.
