The development of urban areas in Brussels is quite a task. Combining social, economic and ecological requirements is not a simple matter. In Brussels, the Brussels Urban Development Service is responsible for spatial development. The service has a range of tasks:
· Planning: Drawing up and monitoring development and usage plans
· Urban development: processing and issuing regional urban development permits, and providing advice on municipal permits
· Housing: granting renovation premiums and subsidies
· Urban regeneration: combatting eyesores and improving the city through a range of urban projects
· Immovable heritage: preserving, protecting and integrating heritage sites into the modern habitat
· Major urban projects: setting up large-scale infrastructure works
On the Brussels Urban Development Service website, you can find more information on everything to do with spatial planning.
