Public Highways Parking Contravention Codes

There are a range of Contravention Codes that classify parking when Civil Enforcement Authorities issue Penalty Charge Notices. These codes  are agreed and issued Nationally for Civil Enforcement Authorities to enforce [if applicable]. They are issued by The Secretary of State for Transport in Guidance to Local Authorities.

Each local authority may enforce all, or a selection of the available contraventions that apply in their area of responsibility. The range of codes enforced will vary for a number of reasons, for example not every authority will have parking spaces designated for Diplomats and therefore that contravention may not be applicable. This explains why the list of enforced codes may be different from one place to another.

Below is the list of Parking Contraventions that Worcester City Council enforce, both on the public highway and in Worcester City Council car parks.
