i have been issued a parking ticket - contravention code 01.

Customer Question

i have been issued a parking ticket - contravention code 01. I was parked on the edge of my works car park, 2 of the wheels were on a dropped pavement which is the access to the car park. I have spoken to my local council, they say I was parked on a pavement and this is why the ticket has been issued. Were they right to issue the ticket even though it was parked there whilst I went in to gain access to the car park. Also is it the correct code?
thank you

Hi there was double yellow lines on the road next to where my car was but I was not parked on them. There are no signs except for loading and unloading. The ticket was issued by the council, my local council is Lancashire County Council. I can attach a photo if that would help?

so if I was to challenge this, my best option is to ask why the council issued the ticket and not the police for obstruction, wrong contravention code and no signs regarding parking on the footpath?
