I am local - Administration

Liaison office Laeken (administrative cel of the city of Brussels)

Laeken is not an independent commune with its own city council but forms part of  the city of Brussels. Laeken is thus not governed by an autonomous city administration.

Laeken  however offers an administrative service that enables citizens to settle a great deal of their administrative matters without needing to go to the city centre.

The following procedures can be carried out in Laeken and certain acts and documents can be obtained here:

  • ID card
  • passport
  • driving licence
  • work permit
  • domestic composition
  • certificate of nationality
  • proof of residence
  • certificate of life
  • copy or an abstract of the certificate of the registry office (of birth from 1991, marriage from 1992, divorce from 1995, deaths from 1991, nationality from 1994, suppletory acts from 1998)
    • attention: some certificates are not delivered immediately
  • mention a change of address on the certificate of registration
  • legalisation of a signature
  • certified true copy of documents in French or in Dutch
  • declaration of change of address
  • parental consent for a journey abroad
  • extract of the police records
  • dispensation for the pollution peaks
  • local resident card and parking cards
  • information and forms concerning Electoral Affairs
  • demand of retirement pension

Sustainable District Contract

The Bockstael district contract is the 15th district contract of the City of Brussels.

New infrastructure and public space projects as well as socio-economic activities (housing, education and employment, youth, environment and culture) are presented in the base file.

The elaboration of this program relies on a participatory process in which local residents, users and associations from the neighbourhood are brought together by establishing a District Commission, organising general meetings and working groups.
