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.
The area is covered by the airport’s safety zone. No buildings or facilities can be established without prior approval from the Greenland Airport Authority.
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.
The area is located under the airport’s obstacle limitation surface, and is covered by the conical surface, where the maximum ridge level of buildings and facilities is variable, having a positive slope away from the outer limit of the horizontal surface.

Special provisions
All new buildings are to be related to airport purposes. The area cannot be put to use until the existing telephone poles have been removed
