The next Inner West Community Committee meeting is to be held next week with finances, an area update and the development of the local care plan on the agenda, writes Keely Bannister.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, 2nd July, from 6pm in the Conference Room at Armley Hub, 2 Stocks Hill, Armley.
