With its 28 103 inhabitants and 2 335 hectares, Ans is located at the gateway to Liège, on the old Liège-Brussels road. It constitutes a transition between the urban aspect of Liège and the countryside to the North and West. In this way, Ans is industrial, commercial, residential and rural (with particularly rich farmland).
Its rich heritage and recent enhancement reinforce the attractive image of Ans and contribute to projecting its dynamic nature.
Thanks to its privileged location at the heart of the European region and the fact that it is a crossroads of communication, Ans is one of the centres of economic development of the Liège region.
PUBLIC LIGHTING MANAGEMENT
The municipality is responsible for:
- street lighting (reconstruction is managed by a regional administration that gathers several municipalities)
- decorative and architectural lighting
- lighting for sports facilities
- christmas lighting
Among recently implemented projects, the luminaires of several streets have been modified in order to enable dimming.
The municipality of Ans has the objective to replace the most consuming light sources with new technologies.
