Contacts for Council Services

The administrative area of Saxmundham has a population of about 4000 and prior to local government re-organisation in 1974 had its own Urban District Council carrying out the majority of functions and services for their community. Saxmundham Town Council has succeeded the Urban District Council for minor functions such as managing the Market Hall, the Memorial Field, and now the Wednesday street market. Services such as refuse collection and street cleaning are administered by Suffolk Coastal District Council. The various strategic services e.g. highways, education, fire service, etc, are the responsibility of the Suffolk County Council. Domestic water is supplied by Essex and Suffolk Water Company and Anglian Water Authority is responsible for sewage disposal services.
