Notices to Mariners

Notices to Mariners provide essential, up to date information and advice to those navigating within the Port of London. Subjects will include (but not be limited to) notification of works and events which may impact on navigation and notification of new and updated rules and regulations for navigation.

Some Notices remain effective indefinitely and these are subsequently published as Permanent Notices to Mariners.

Notices are charged as set out in the PLA Charges Schedule.  Please click here for details about charges for Notices to Mariners.

You can register to receive Notices to Mariners by email.
