    The article relates to the relations between the urban forms and the productivity of the collective services. It is based on the distinction between three types of technical supply : infrastructures, superstructures and the road servicing by specialized agents. The researches developed for the Walloon context on this topic confirm the literature concerning the importance of the costs of sprawl for infrastructure services (particularly for drinking water pipes and wastewater treatment). It also arises from the analysis that the costs of sprawl are massively collectivised, via taxation or invoicing which by no means consider the influence of the modes of settlement on the investment needs.
