Coddenham is home to just over 600 residents and is situated on the B1078, 2 miles to the east of the A140 and 8 miles to the North of Ipswich in the heart of Mid Suffolk. During the Roman period it was the largest settlement in Suffolk. Indeed there is evidence of human activity in the Parish for over 5,000 years.

If you come across any local issues, please report them. Issues other than roads and grit bins can be reported directly to the District Council. This includes a wide range of issues including anti-social behaviour, graffiti, flooding, alleged breaches of planning, abandoned vehicles and even dead animals. To do this please visit the Mid-Suffolk District Council Reporting website. If the issue relates to the roads/highways then you can report it directly to Suffolk County Council Highways team. This includes any problems with blocked drains, flooding, heavy goods vehicle incidents, grass cutting, signs, road markings, potholes, pavement defects, public right of ways, street lighting, trees or hedges that affect the highway and more. Please visit the Suffolk County Council Highways website. If you discover a grit bin that has run out of grit please contact the Parish Clerk because Suffolk County Council only refill bins if it is reported by a Parish Council.
