This CBC operation dealt with the implementation of a multilevel cooperation between the cities of Baarle-Hertog and Baarle-Nassau.
No specific obstacle for this activity. For general obstacles to CBC, please check the contributor's page.
In the late 1990s the Benelux Treaty on Transfrontier Co-operation between Territorial Communities or Authorities (1986, in force since 1991) was realised providing three levels of judicial co-operation. Through this framework, the cities of Baarle-Hertog and Baarle-Nassau have established a collaborative joint fire and rescue services, a joint library and cultural center, music academy, and a joint waste facility.
This cooperation promoted the establishment of a joint body to formalise the cross border co-operation: the Common Organ Baarle. Its main purpose is to negotiate and communicate on all matters of common interest and to eventually reach common decision and policy-making. The Common Organ in plenary session is the gathering of the two municipal councils and its decisions are binding. Furthermore, the statutes established also a monthly consultation of both courts of mayor and aldermen, constituting the Common Organ in limited session.
