The link to the 3D OLS page on the Gibraltar GeoPortal can be access by clicking here. On this page it is possible to find the maximum height permitted building height, for aviation purposes only, that can be built at any site in Gibraltar. NB - Read the "HOW TO USE" notes on the page to understand the accuracy and limitations of the heights obtained.
In addition to the documents above, the Airport Operators Association has recently published guidance material on the subject in the UK, which is reproduced below. While the guidance material is directed at Developers intending to build infrastructure and building near UK Airports, it provides very useful general guidance information for Developers looking to build in Gibraltar. However, it should be noted that where there is a conflict with information contained in the local documents above, the local documents take presedence and their requirements are to be met.
Should there be doubt over the interpretation or applicability of the AOA guidance details, then please contact the DCA by e-mail (email@example.com) to resolve the issue.
