Located in the heart of the Charleroi district, the municipality was created from the merger of Courcelles, Gouy-lez-Piéton, Souvret and Trazegnies. Now, Courcelles wants to renovate its urban environment in order to restructure, clean up, and rehabilitate specific areas. Its aim is to improve its environment and housing offer, and strengthen socio-economic and cultural dynamics as part of a general spatial planning perspective.
