The advisory circular you're looking for is 150/5300-13 (or something similar) Airport Design It defines all the "Imaginary" runway surfaces,the clear areas, etc.
There you'll find the distances required it depends on the group/category of aircraft that is intended to use the runway, e.g the required setback distances are different if you intend to use the runway for an A380 or if the primary intended aircraft is a single engine piston.
Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from surviving bad judgement.

I think also Structure has to be an X "Slant Distance" away from the Runway.[Hence Height of structure Permitted can Increase with Distance Away].
Not sure of the Exact Numbers.Will need to find out.

It depends on the design aircraft (design group), the type of approach (precision/non-precision), the minimums, the field elevation, and the desired taxiway system. The Building Restriction Line (BRL) is no longer used as a design standard per se.
Example 1: The field elevation is Sea Level - easiest reference point. Your design group is Group IV (767), you want dual parallel taxiways (Group IV), you need a vehicle service road (50') and a ramp deep enough for the aircraft (250').
Your runway width is 150'. Your first taxiway is a standard 400' from the runway (centerline to centerline), or in lieu 600' for accute angled high speed exists. Your second parallel taxiway is 215' from the first taxiway (total is now between 615' and 815' from the runway centerline to the second taxiway centerline), You then have the distance from the taxiway centerline to a fixed or moveable object, this distance is 129.5' (new total 744.5' to 944.5'). Your vehicle service road and ramp depth total 300'. Thus in this scenario, your terminal wall is between 1044.5' and 1244.5' from the runway centerline. The height will vary, I'll get to that.
Example 2: The field elevation is Sea Level - easiest reference point. Your design group is Group III (737), you want a single parallel taxiway (Group III), you need a vehicle service road (50') and a ramp deep enough for the aircraft (200').
The runway width is 150'. Your taxiway is a standard 400' from the runway (centerline to centerline), or in lieu 500' for accute angled high speed exists. You then have the distance from the taxiway centerline to a fixed or moveable object, this distance is 93' in this case due to the narrower wingspan (new total 493' to 593'). Your vehicle service road and ramp depth total 250'. Thus in this scenario, your terminal wall is between 743' and 843' from the runway.
Height is more complicated. The calculation is new. It's based on the wing span, field elevation, and desired landing minimums and complicated. I'll let you read it for an ex"plane"ation:
