The communes of the Brussels-Capital Region

The 19 communes of the Brussels-Capital Region are often the first point of contact for citizens
The commune, the home of all citizens, manages matters relating to the daily life of the inhabitants of Brussels and the communal territory. In the Brussels-Capital Region the 19 communes play an essential role in urban governance.

For citizens the communes are the basic political body that is closest to their daily lives. It is where citizens are registered or resident, it is where they make use of administrative services, where they vote. The commune offers citizens an impressive range of services.

This subsection provides a description of what communes do and how communes are organised.

Local gouvernance in Brussels
The Order of 5 March 2009 amending the New Communal Act introduced a local gouvernance plan (FR/NL) to modernise the administration and improve the quality of public service provided to citizens.

In the interests of improving how they welcome, inform and serve citizens the communes provide administrative services online, through their own websites and IRISbox (FR/NL), the e-government service of the Brussels-Capital Region.
Moreover, you can find the communal regulations within the Region on Editoria, the website for publications in the Brussels-Capital Region.
The Association de la Ville et des Communes de la Région de Bruxelles-Capitale (association of the city and communes of the Brussels-Capital Region) is a non-profit organisation serving the Region’s local authorities. It works to strengthen the role of the 19 communes in overall decision-making and create better synergy at local level.
