The Department recently published an Area Development Plan in draft format which sets out the educational infrastructural requirements of the North Dublin, East Meath and South Louth area into the future. In this draft Plan, which is available on the Department's website,www.education.ie, the Department recommends the provision of a 1,000 pupil post primary school for the Lusk area.
The Commission on School accommodation has commenced a public consultation process on the draft document. Interested parties can participate in this process by either forwarding written submissions and/or by making oral presentations to the Commission. Arrangements will be made to hear oral presentations locally. The consultation process will culminate in a final infrastructural Plan which will become the framework against which capital investment for the areas concerned will be made for the foreseeable future.
