B. The permit will further specifically set forth in detail safety measures which are to be taken to insure that the area to be designated for the landing of such craft is not accessible to the general public, and that it will be policed to prevent the public from wandering into it or otherwise using the same for purposes other than the landing of this type of aircraft.
