Further details of contravention code 22

Contravention code 22 is summarised as re-parked in the same parking place within one hour (or other specified time) of leaving.

Re-parked

Contravention code 22 shall be used for vehicles seen to be re-parked in the same parking place within one hour (or other specified time) of leaving. No observation period will be applied after the no-return period has expired.  

This contravention applies to both pay and display spaces and limited waiting spaces.

Where individual spaces are marked out, a vehicle may not return to the same specific space in which it was originally parked within the no-return period.

Where longer parking bays with no individually marked out spaces are provided (in other words, where two or more vehicles may park) a vehicle may not return to the same parking bay in which it was originally parked within the no-return period.
