Services for citizens


Directly involved in the development of their area, the citizens of Picardy Wallonia are also an asset to it. Every day, the IDETA teams get right alongside municipalities and companies to offer Picardy Wallonia’s inhabitants a prosperous region where it’s good to live and work.

IDETA regularly organises public information meetings for the inhabitants of Picardy Wallonia. The purpose of these meetings is to better identify citizens’ needs and concerns and review the development of projects sponsored by the agency.


Bébé Boulot, a network of four crèches

Keen to develop a range of services for the community, IDETA has created a network of children’s homes in the heart of the region’s business parks in close proximity to businesses and parents working there.

Run by the nonprofit organisation Bébé Boulot, the four crèches are located in modern, sustainable buildings and offer 116 hosting sites.


THE crematorium ‘Les Blancs Arbres’

Open to the different rites, forms of worship and wishes of the deceased, the crematorium ‘Les Blancs Arbres’ (Frasnes-lez-Anvaing) offers a qualitative, human response to cremation needs. The architectural quality of the premises, their integration into the landscape and the quality of support offered help families maintain their sense of calm in their loss.

The  crematorium ‘Les Blancs Arbres’ is managed through the Westlede (Lochristi) intercommunal partership. Incorporating cross-regional and cross-border dynamics, its design focuses on the values of public interest, ethics and respect for the environment.
