Recieved this reply from Hornsby Shire council regarding backlog of applicants awaiting ceremony at Hornsby...

Dear Mudassar,

We are conducting ceremonies face-to-face each month for 100 candidates. This event will be managed under Covid-19 protocols. All attending must wear masks and be vaccinated.
At the moment, we have 250 applicants on the waiting list (this is main applicants and does not include children). I expect you will be invited to a ceremony in March or April.
I receive the list from the Department of Home Affairs about 1 month before the ceremony. I am expecting the March list to come through next week.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind Regards
Louise
