Mumbai relaxes planning requirements for rooftop helipads

16-May-2016 Source:

In a surprise move, city planners in the Indian city of Mumbai have proposed to allow helipads on rooftops of buildings over 200 metres in height without any planning application or approval.  The proposal allows the helipad to project out by 1.2 metres from the building line too.

Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation – the local authority running the city of Mumbai – has said that all other permits and approvals will still be required, including the Director General of Civil Aviation, the Union Defence Ministry, the state government, fire regulations as well as sign-off from a registered structural engineer.  The latter will have to issue a certificate confirming the helipad will not affect the structural integrity of the tower.

These new rules also allow for creation of rooftop gardens.
