18Date of Next Meeting

To be held at 7pm on Tuesday , 11th October, 2005 . Members are asked to note that this will be a special meeting to be held at the Swinton High School and , in addition to presentations from the school , will concentrate on the Swinton Community Action Plan.

The formulation of the CAP will give the Committee the opportunity to draw attention to issues in Swinton which Members feel are too large a scale to be funded under the Devolved Budget and should , instead , be met from the Council's overall budget . At the time of agenda preparation the arrangements for consultation on the budget for 2006/07 have not been finalised . It is likely , however, that each Member will receive an individual questionnaire on the subject . There will be also a number of public meetings on the subject ; one is provisonally scheduled for 6pm on 26th October , 2005 , at the Salford Civic Centre.
