Municipalities of the Netherlands


Municipalities of the Netherlands

|
Politics of the Netherlands

All provinces of the Netherlands are divided into municipalities ("gemeenten"), together 443 (2007).

__TOC__

Among the municipalities we can distinguish:
*those comprising one main city, town or village with the same name as the municipality, and possibly some additional villages; for example
**Utrecht, comprising the city Utrecht and the villages De Meern, Haarzuilens, Vleuten.
*those comprising several villages, none with the name of the municipality; in that case the name of the municipality may not be as well-known outside it as the villages; for example:
**Albrandswaard comprising the villages of Poortugaal and Rhoon.
*those with a double name, comprising (mainly) the two towns or villages in the name, for example:
**Pijnacker-Nootdorp, comprising the villages Pijnacker and Nootdorp.
*those comprising a main town and additional villages, yet the municipality is not named after this town; for example:
**Smallingerland with main town Drachten.
**Haarlemmermeer with main town Hoofddorp.

Recent politics have led to a great number of mergers between smaller municipalities or with cities, a process which will continue in the future (with a few mergers set to occur on 2009-01-01 and 2010-01-01). On 15 December 2008 Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius will become part of the Netherlands "per se" with a status equivalent to that of municipalities.cite news |first= |last= |author=Staff reporter |coauthors= |title=Agreement on division of Netherlands Antilles |url=http://www.government.nl/actueel/nieuwsarchief/2007/02February/13/0-42-1_42-92711.jsp |format=HTML |work= |publisher=Government.nl |pages= |page= |date=2007-02-13 |accessdate=2007-02-24 ]

All current municipalities of the Netherlands have a different name, except that there are Bergen, North Holland and Bergen, Limburg.

Further subdivisions

Based on a subdivision made for the 1947 census, there are ca. 2,400 quarters, subdivided in ca. 11,000 neighbourhoods.

On the other hand, there is a list of 7,000 places.

A large place consists of several quarters, but a small place is only part of a quarter.
