Brighten up Dalry Town Centre.


History

During the spring of 2015 it was brought to the attention of the DCDH that there were significant concerns about the apparent loss of
the community space and assets at Dalry Town Centre. The DCDH agreed at their meeting of 9th June 2015 to address this issue on
behalf of the community of Dalry.
Having examined the area at the Cross and its access routes, a letter was sent by DCDH to NAC, on the 8th July 2015, listing our
concerns.
A meeting took place on 6th Aug 2015, and the actions agreed at the meeting were recorded.
NAC suggested, during September 2015, that DCDH should apply to the Town Centre Communities Capital Fund to secure the
necessary finance to carry out the identified work at Dalry Cross.
DCDH then attempted to secure this funding. Unfortunately the application was unsuccessful.
A further meeting with NAC officers then took place on 9th February 2016 to find a solution for the Dalry Community.
At the meeting NAC confirmed their willingness to commit to reinstating and augmenting facilities at the community area Dalry Cross in
time to allow a street party, to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday, to take place On Sunday June 12th 2016.
