Waveney is a local government district in Suffolk, England, named after the River Waveney that forms its north-west border. The district council is based in Lowestoft, which is the only unparished area in the district. The other towns in the district are Beccles, Bungay, Halesworth and Southwold.

The district was formed on April 1, 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, as a merger of the municipal boroughs of Beccles, Lowestoft and Southwold, along with Bungay and Halesworth urban districts, Wainford Rural District and part of Lothingland Rural District. Waveney District Council is currently under Conservative Party control.
