As the owner and operator of the Toowoomba Aerodrome,Toowoomba Regional Council has an important role in providing safe operating conditions for all aerodrome users. To ensure that all proposed activities comply with the relevant legislation and Council's local policies and procedures, applications must be lodged with the Aerodrome Operations office at least 48 business hours prior to high clearance plant being used.

What is high clearance plant

High clearance plant, is plant such as cranes and concrete boom pumps that are sometimes used in major building projects to assist with construction works and maintenance works of larger buildings.

Why is this a concern for the Toowoomba aerodrome

Due to the location of the Toowoomba aerodrome and the growth that Toowoomba is experiencing, the requirement and demand for building is also increasing. The height at which high clearance plant can go to, particularly cranes, can penetrate into airspace that the Aerodrome Operator has to protect under the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) Regulations. CASA are the governing body who determines both Aviation rules and Regulations. Under these rules the Aerodrome Operator has to implement a protection layer known as the Obstacle Limitation Surfaces (OLS).

The OLS protects the aerodrome for up to 15 kilometres, which is inhabited by residential land industrial areas. Therefore it is of utmost importance that operators of high clearance plant inform the Aerodrome Operations Office of pending works.The Aerodrome Operations Office requires at least 48 business hrs notice.
