Use
The area is to be used as an unbuilt area in the shape of common open space

Only to a miniscule extent may new buildings and facilities be established as part of the recreational use of the area

Remaining available space
No special provisions

Traffic service and utilities
Within the area, only roads and other facilities that ensure the execution of the town plan’s projects are to be established

Listed, protected and preservation-worthy features
Within a distance of 20 metres, registered ancient monuments are to be kept clear of buildings and facilities, cf. section 5 in the Preservation Act. The Greenland National Museum may grant an exception from the provisions.

Regulated zones
The area is covered by the protection zone for the water catchment area. The protection zone runs 30 metres outside of the catchment area border. Constructing buildings and facilities or keeping dogs etc. within the protection zone is not permitted.
A safety zone exists for the explosives store, stipulating storage of a maximum of explosives and items in the explosives store.
If the explosives store is fully covered by solid mountain/hill sections, the safety distance to towns and settlements etc. and roads may be reduced by 50 per cent in directions where full coverage exists.
A safety zone of 760.0 metres exists.
The area is covered by the telecommunications installations’ line of sight area. The line of sight area is variable and depends on where the installations are located on the ground. This part of the area cannot be developed or in any other way be used contrary to the line of sight area provisions.
Regulated zones exist around the airport in the shape of obstacle limitation surfaces that consist of partly a horizontal surface and a conical surface, partly approach and take-off surfaces in continuation of the runway.
The area is located under the obstacle limitation surface at the airport and is covered by approach and take-off surfaces. The maximum ridge level of buildings and facilities and the construction level of roads are variable and depend on the distance to the runway and a right-angled distance from the centre line.
The area is located under the airport’s obstacle limitation surface, and is covered by the horizontal surface, where buildings and other facilities cannot be established higher than level 171.0 metres and roads no higher than level 165.0 metres.

Special provisions
The area cannot be used for explosives store, until a permission has been granted by the government body regulating explosives
