Written answers (Question to Education)

The building project for Naas Community College has been devolved for delivery to Kildare and Wicklow Education and Training Board (KWETB).

The up-to-date position is that the Department has received a Stage 2B submission for the project from KWETB and its Design Team.  This is the detailed design documentation on which the tender and construction phases will be based.  The submission is currently being examined by the Department’s Professional and Technical staff. As soon as this examination is completed, and assuming it is in order, the Department will be in contact with KWETB in relation to progressing the project to tender and construction.
