Kraainem doing things


The aim of this list, which will be updated as projects progress, is to give you an overview of the work carried out by our agents and administration in the service of the population. It does not, of course, cover all the day-to-day activities of the commune (public services, building permits, daily maintenance of green spaces, administrative and financial monitoring, etc.). As promised, and as part of our commitment to transparency, we’d also like to publish what’s not going so well, so that we can adjust our priorities if necessary.

Let’s stay connected!

Ask all your questions on FACEBOOK Live every Friday evening at 6pm.

A good opportunity to take stock of what’s going on in Kraainem and to keep a closer eye on life in our beautiful commune.

A healthy project for Kraainem

A civil engineer by training, with a background in the private sector, I’m a proponent of a pragmatic approach: solution-oriented thinking across party boundaries, good knowledge of the issues, transparent communication without taboos, constructive dialogue with neighboring regions and communes, teamwork and broad citizen participation. I’m at your service.

For Kraainem, I would like to

– Roads, sidewalks and bicycle paths that are functional and safe for users
– Less traffic and noise pollution
– A good quality of life for citizens
– More attention to health and safety
– Preserving the green character of the commune and the environment
– Harmonious coexistence of a highly diverse and dynamic population
– Efficient services for citizens
– A healthy financial situation for the commune
