The Burlington Executive Airport is located in the city's rural area on a collection of parcels known municipally as 5260, 5296, 5300, 5316 (all one property) and 5342 Bell School Line and 5351 Appleby Line.
The airport was founded in 1962 and has a longstanding presence in the city's rural area. It consists of two paved runways, a main north-south runway and an east-west runway that was formerly grass, but was paved sometime in the last four years. The airport also includes a terminal and several hangars used for the storage and repair of aircraft.
Currently, the airport is bringing in substantial quantities of fill. This operation has been going on for the last five years. Airport officials have indicated that the work they are doing is to raise and level a large portion of the site for expansion of the airport.
Residents neighboring the airport property have raised a number of concerns about fill being moved onto the site as well as about the site expansion.
Any activities related to aeronautics, including expansion of an existing airport, are subject to federal regulation through Transport Canada, the Federal Aeronautics Act and Canadian Aviation Regulations. These activities do not have to comply with local or provincial plans, policies, bylaws or regulations.
The City of Burlington has taken the position that the city's site alteration bylaw is applicable and must be complied with. As a result the City of Burlington issued an Order to Comply related to the city's Site Alteration Bylaw 6-2003 on May 3, 2013.
