Here are the contravention codes which are in force and for which parking tickets (penalty charge notices) may be issued.  I have shown the contravention codes for on street and off street (car park) contraventions and the level of penalty charged for each contravention. If you get a parking ticket (penalty charge notice) do check that the contravention code is correct.  The notorious contravention 9 has been in the news recently!
