Written answers (Question to Minister for Education and Science)

A project for the school to which the Deputy refers is currently at the final stage of appointing a Design Team. The school's preferred design team has been approved by my Department following an open tender competition and contracts for appointment of the design team have been forwarded to the school for completion by the school and the design team. Following the appointment of the design team the project will commence architectural planning without delay.

Question:

1075 Deputy Leo Varadkar asked the Minister for Education and Science the progress made on the provision of an extension for a school (details supplied) in Dublin 15. [1360/10]

View answer

The project to which the Deputy refers is currently at an advanced stage of architectural planning. This project has a band 1.1 rating and includes the provision of an enhanced community facility in conjunction with Fingal County Council.

The Stage 2a submission has recently been approved and the Design Team has been authorised to begin work on Stage 2(b) (Detailed Design). Approval has also been given to the school to seek planning permission.

The project is expected to proceed to tender as soon as planning permission has been obtained and the necessary tender documentation prepared. As the timeframe for securing planning permission cannot be guaranteed, it is not possible at this time to be certain as to when this project will proceed to construction. However, assuming that planning permission is granted under the normal conditions, it is intended that the project will be on site at the earliest possible date.

Question:

1076 Deputy Leo Varadkar asked the Minister for Education and Science the progress made on the provision of an extension for a school (details supplied) in Dublin 15. [1361/10]

View answer

The project to which the Deputy refers is at an advanced stage of architectural planning.

County Dublin VEC and their design team are currently finalising an application for planning permission and this is expected to be lodged shortly.

The proposed building project will be considered in the context of the Department's multi-annual School Building and Modernisation Programme for 2010 and subsequent years. However, in light of current competing demands on the capital budget of the Department, it is not possible to give an indicative timeframe for the delivery of the project at this time.
