No new building/structure shall be allowed within the strip of a runway. 3. The portion of the approach/departure zone where new construction is alowed is an isosceles trapezoid symmetrical about the prolongation of the runway centerline, the shorter base of which is the inner edge of the approach/departure zone. The height of buildings/structures within this zone shall be limited by an imaginary line with a slope of 2% for the first 3,000 meters from the inner edge reckoned from the surface of the runway, and thence 2.5% beyond 3,000 meters. The dimensions of the isosceles trapezoid are as shown on the table below: Inner edge Distance between Length of runway (Short base) Long base bases in meters in meters in meters in meters -------------------------------------------------------------------------------1,500 or more 1,050 3,000 Less than 1,500 4. 300 150 900 3,000 A height clearance certificate shall first be secured from the CAA (now BAT) before a building permit may be issued or the construction of buildings/structure located: a) within 500 meters measured normal to the centerline of the runway of an airport, regardless of height; b) from 500 meters up to 24.5 kilometers measured normal to the centerline of the runway of an airport and exceeding 45 meters in height above the elevation of the runway; c) within the approach/departure zone of an airport at a distance of 2,250 meters measured from the inner edge, regardless of height; d) within the approach/departure zone of an airport beyond 2,250 meters from the inner edge up to 15 kilometers and exceeding 45 meters in height above the elevation of the runway. RULE XVIII - MAXIMUM HEIGHT OF BUILDINGS/STRUCTURES Pursuant to Section 707 of the National Building code (PD 1096) the maximum height and number of stories of every building shll be dependent upon the character of occupancy and the type of construction considering population density, building bulk, widths of streets and car parking requirements in relation to other existing local land use plan and zoning regulations, geological, hydrological, meterorological, light and ventilation, as well as other environmental considerations, prevailing traffic conditions, the availability and capacity of public utility/service systems. 1. Definitions - For purposes of this Rule, the following definitions shall apply: HEIGHT OF BUILDINGS/STRUCTURE - The vertical distance from the established grade elevation to the highest point of the coping of a flat roof, to the average height of the highest gable, pitch or hip roof, or to the top of the parapet, if the roof is provided with a parapet, whichever is higher (see Figs. 1-A, 1-B, 1-C). CHARACTER OF OCCUPANCY buildings/structures or portions thereof. The classification of use or occupancy of TYPE OF CONSTRUCTION - The classification based on the fire resistivity ratin...
