III. City-hinterland relations

- 3 general facts:

- morphological urban zone ≠ fonctional urban zone

- urban sprawl → conflicts between the core city and its suburb

- economical competition

- Main issues in Brussels :

- a substantial number of commuters from the suburb to Brussels

- competition between Brussels and its hinterland to attract investors, inhabitants and tourists

→ Need of cooperation to be attractive together for the general interest

→ Actual cooperation: the Express Railway Network

→ Potential cooperations: Spatial planning, tourism and mobility

The concept of integrated urban development

- Three caracteristics:

Participation of non public actors in decision making

Objectives for specific districts

Sectorial politics oriented to problems in urban districts

- In practice, we need:

A geographical reference

A pooling for resources

Implication and responsabilisation of non institutional actors

A district management

IV. Concrete experience of integrated urban development

Practice of integrated urban development in Brussels: the District Contracts

The District Contract is a scheme for the integrated regeneration of disavantaged districts in Brussels since 1994 ;

The municipalities propose a district with actions & the Region choises which districts will benefit from the contract ;

Duration: 4 years ;

Financing: 90% by the Region & 10% by the municipality ;

Fields: housing, public spaces & socio-economic cohesion ;

Major element: consultation thanks toLocal Integrated Development

Committee(CLDI) gathering institutions, private partners and inhabitants
