Safeguarded Wharves Directions

Safeguarding policy transferred to the Mayor of London from the Secretary of State in 2000. The Mayor reviewed the original 1997 list of wharves in conjunction with the Port of London Authority and concluded that 25 of them should retain their protected status. Further wharves downstream of the Thames Barrier were also examined and 25 of them were added to the list.
Listed below are the directions for the existing safeguarded wharves that are retained, plus directions covering the list of additional wharves. They are sorted by borough. These were issued by the Secretary of State and require that all planning applications affecting the wharves must be referred to the Mayor.
