Written answers (Question to Education)

The school authority (Dublin and Dún Laoghaire Educational Training Board) was advised by my Department last week, following a review of it’s Stage 2A (Developed Design Stage) submission, that it may now proceed to Stage 2B (Detail Design Stage) which includes the seeking of all statutory approvals including Planning Permission, Fire Safety Certificate and the Disability Access Certificate and the preparation of tender documents.

The timeframe for the further progression of the project through the tender and construction stages will necessarily be dependent on the timeframe for the school authority and its design team successfully completing stage 2B.

Until such time as planning permission has been secured and the project has progressed to and completed tender stage and the appointment of a building contractor, it will not be possible to provide an indicative timeframe for the completion of the construction stage of this project.
