Which council service do I need?

There are three tiers of local government serving Sudbury; Suffolk County Council, Babergh District Council and Sudbury Town Council. A list of the responsibilities of each tier of local council can be found below.

Sudbury Town Council is based at The Town Hall and is dedicated to serving the town. We are the 'grassroots' tier of local government as we are close to the local community and committed to delivering projects, services and events that make Sudbury a better place to live, work and visit.

Meet our officers here.  A list of nearby town and parish councils can be found here.

sudbury market

Sudbury Town Council is proud to run Sudbury's outdoor market every Thursday & Saturday in the centre of town on Market Hill. Sudbury is an ancient Market Town, and a market has existed here for over 1000 years, a vital part of our Town Centre vibrancy and character. We welcome new trader enquiries. 

EVENTS, ceremonies & parades

Sudbury Town Council organises a number of annual events. These may be civic ceremonies such as Remembrance Day or larger, free community events like our popular Christmas Light Switch on, Party in The Park or local events hosted as part or wider regional or national campaigns such as Heritage Open Days or Suffolk Day. During COVID-19 restrictions we have hosted a number of events virtually.
