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. It 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 January 2019 are shown below.
