Written answers (Question to Education)

The major building project for the school to which the Deputy refers is an advanced stage of architectural planning - Stage 2(b) - Detailed Design, which includes the applications for Planning Permission, Fire Certificate and Disability Access Certificate and the preparation of Tender Documents. All applications for Statutory Approvals have been lodged and the Disability Access Certificate has been secured.

The Department and its design team are currently engaged with the Local Authority regarding the planning application, including dealing with a Request for Further Information.

When all Statutory Approvals are secured the Design Team will finalise the Stage 2(b) - Detailed Design submission which will be submitted to the Department for review. Following receipt and consideration of that report my Department will revert to the school with regard to the further progression of the project at that time.
