Welcome to Dalbeattie Matters, the website for the Dalbeattie community
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: email@example.com.

Spaces for People -
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
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.
