Control of Development in Airport Public Safety Zones

Published on Tue, 18 Dec 2007 by
The Department has published the final version of the Policy Document ‘Control of Development in Airport Public Safety Zones’.  This follows consultation on the draft document published in October 2006.
In tandem with this publication Public Safety Zones have been revised for George Best Belfast City Airport and Belfast International Airport by the Department for Transport. These are in the format of maps relating to each airport and for ease of reference these have been appended to the policy document.
The policy document sets out the Department’s revised policy for the control of development in Public Safety Zones (PSZs) – areas of land at the ends of the runways within which development is restricted in order to control the number of people on the ground at risk of death or injury in the event of an aircraft accident on take–off or landing.
Hard copies of the document will shortly be available. A Summary of Consultation Responses on the draft document has also been produced.
Both documents can also be ordered by telephoning, by text phone, or in writing:
