The parish of Nayland with Wissington is in the district of Babergh and the parliamentary constituency of South Suffolk. It has a population of nearly 1,200 and is situated in the Dedham Vale, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the River Stour, the boundary between Suffolk and Essex. It was bypassed in 1969 by the A134 which links Colchester, 6 miles south of Nayland, to Sudbury, 9 miles to the north of Nayland. Nayland village and the adjoining rural hamlet of Wissington (these days usually called 'Wiston'), were originally two separate parishes. They were united in one civil parish in 1833 although the two ecclesiastical parishes remained separate.
The Nayland with Wissington Parish Council was created in 1894 as a result of the Local Government Act of that year. The Council currently meets every second Wednesday in the month in the Committee Room of the Nayland Village Hall, Church Lane, Nayland, at 7.30 p.m. Church Lane is just off the High Street, opposite the White Hart. Details of the members of the Council as at May 2019 are shown below.
URGENT: MORE PARISH COUNCILLORS ARE REQUIRED TO SHARE THE RESPONSIBILITIES AT THIS LEVEL OF LOCAL AUTHORITY:
Following the District and Parish elections in May 2019 there are FOUR VACANCIES for CO-OPTED PARISH COUNCILLORS
Areas of responsibility include Open Spaces, Playing Fields and Fairfield Play Area, Allotments, Burial Ground and Streetlighting. The Parish Council liaises with District and County Councils on Highways, PROW footpaths, Planning Applications and other services. The Parish Council is the landowner and landlord of Nayland Village Hall and Playing Field managed by the Village Hall Management Committee.
If you are over 18, live or work in Nayland or Wiston or within two miles of the parish boundary, then you are eligible to be co-opted as a Parish Councillor. If you would like to become more involved in your local community and council decisions about the management of services and areas of responsibility within Nayland and Wiston, please contact the Parish Clerk or a Parish Councillor for more information.
