Cours de Pile Town Hall


Local Services and Amenities


The communal road network has three main axes :
• The CD 37 which crosses the commune from east to west and around which much of the village has grown up.
• Running parallel to the CD 37 is the Château de Pile road which serves the hamlet of Migay and links up with the Mouleydier bridge.
• The Coustinet road heads out of the village, up the hill towards Agen.
• During the thirty years or so the road which made most used for getting to and from the village is not, in fact, the CD 37 but the Route des Gilets. The Gilets bridge (a former Eiffel-style one-track railway bridge) served links the communal road network to the CD 660 (the Lalinde road).


 Since thursday 26 february 2004, the opening of the first section of the extended ‘Route Nationale’ RN 21 linking the Roumanières and Creysse roundabouts is improving traffic circulation in with, in particular a new interchange and roundabout at ‘Les Gilets’. The new bridge over the Dordogne River is, equally, making conditions easier for drivers heading east to Lalinde and north to Périgueux.

This special situation, off the main highways, made it possible for Cours-de-Pile to keep its rural character and assure a certain peacefulness for its inhabitants.

The drainage and sanitation network of the commune, which currently extends as far as the hamlet of Bazet, is connected to the communal water purification station of the main urban sectors. It is in the west sector that the grounds urbanisables are most numerous. The part east of the commune is reserved for agriculture and natural spaces.

Gas is piped along the Bergerac road meaning that residents have access to a competitively priced energy source.

Local town planning regulations (PLU) were approved in March 2000 ensuring proper management of the open countryside.(modified in 2002).
