Welcome to Dalbeattie Matters, the website for the Dalbeattie community

Your Community Initiative office has moved

The Initiative main office has now moved and is located at 16 High Street (previously insurance office). At the new premises our information point shop is at the front and the main office is at the back. We envisage combining our services will create a central point of contact for local, community, visitor, and project information. This also means the Ebikes and Rocks and Wheels project have a dedicated office space at 71 High Street.
To contact the main office our new telephone number is now 01556 612752, address 16 High Street, Dalbeattie DG5 4AA, email is the same: info71.dci@gmail.com.

Spaces for People -
suggestions wanted

As COVID-19 restrictions are lifting and we start to get out and about more, space for physical distancing is becoming even more important to limit virus transmission.

With support from walking and cycling charity Sustrans Scotland, Dumfries and Galloway Council are implementing changes suggested by residents to town centre locations where more space is needed for people.

In the coming months our town centres need to prioritise and enable safe physical distancing to support local businesses and residents to stay safe by limiting transmission of COVID-19. We want to encourage people to walk, cycle or wheel at a safe physical distance from others, avoiding unnecessary car journeys. 

To ensure that as many people as possible have the opportunity to share their views we have set up  the Spaces for People map where comments and suggestions about creating temporary space for walking and cycling can be posted. While it may not be possible to address every issue that is suggested, the Council will use the site to prioritise their work. The website closes on the 21st August.
