The City of Brussels has taken several decisions in order to best respect the measures of the federal government in the fight against the coronavirus (Covid-19). More info: coronavirus measures by the City of Brussels.


Neder-Over-Heembeek - Mutsaard District Council

Mid-March 2020, a first District Council will be created in the City of Brussels. The Neder-Over-Heembeek - Mutsaard District Council will count 11 citizens and 6 representatives from the local volunteer sector.

What is a District Council?

The District Council wants to build the City together by:

  • orienting local, public investments (participation budget of 1 million euros)
  • increasing the involvement of citizens
  • promoting innovation in the neighborhood

Composition and designation

On 3 February 2020, 2,000 residents of Neder-Over-Heembeek - Mutsaard received a personal letter. They were chosen by lottery to present themselves as a candidate member.

A second draw will take place with the applications that will be received at the beginning of March. This draw must provide a diversity of profiles in terms of age, place of residence, socio-professional activity, language, gender and educational level. These citizens will be assisted by 6 representatives from the local volunteer sector (selected following a call for applications).

Meetings of the District Council

The members of the District Council will start their one-year mission (after their installation by the City Council) with a first information meeting on 14 March 2020. The District Council will then meet every month.
