 The status of the Crookwell Christmas in the Park committee as a representative 355 body of the Upper Lachlan Shire Council, has been rescinded.

Nor does it provide a management role or advice to council in relation to operational matters.


The removal of the Christmas in the Park committee as a 355 body of council follows discussions between committee members and council officers.


A spokesperson says council's decision does not preclude the Christmas in the Park committee from meeting or undertaking projects.
