What is a Citizen Budget?

With the Citizen Budget, the City of Brussels aims to involve its citizens in decisions on public investments that improve life in a neighbourhood. It starts with a call for ideas, which makes it possible to identify the concrete expectations of neighbourhood residents.

The District Council then assesses the feasibility of the ideas received and determines which are most relevant. Then, the selected ideas become real projects, to be worked out together by the project leaders and the City services.

The detailed projects are then presented to local residents, who can cast their votes. Only then does the Board of Mayor and Aldermen approve the projects. Each year, the Board decides for which neighbourhood or neighbourhoods there will be a Citizen Budget and what amount will be available.
